The body of IDF soldier Corporal Noa Marciano, who was abducted by the Hamas terrorist organization, was found near the Shifa Hospital in Gaza.
According to the IDF, Marciano’s body was extracted by IDF troops from a structure adjacent to the Shifa Hospital in Gaza, and was transferred to Israeli territory.
Following an identification process that was conducted by military medical and rabbinate personnel, on Thursday, IDF representatives informed her family that her body was extracted and returned to Israeli territory.
“The IDF sends its heartfelt condolences to the family and will continue to support them,” a statement read. “The national task before our eyes is to locate the missing and return the abducted persons home.”
“The IDF is operating alongside and in full coordination with the relevant national and security institutions in order to pursue these tasks. We will not cease from the mission until it will be completed.”
Marciano appeared in a video which Hamas aired earlier this week and which the IDF called “psychological terror.”
That same day, the IDF confirmed that Marciano, a 19-year-old resident of Modi’in who served as a lookout in the IDF, is no longer alive.
