IDF Soldier Wounded in Gaza Now Missing in Nepal

Daniel Bar On

As the IDF continues to provide aid and support in earthquake-ravaged Nepal, Yediot Achronot reports on an Israeli still missing after the disaster – an IDF soldier who was wounded during Operation Protective Edge:

As a group of 216 Israelis who had survived the Nepal earthquake arrived in Israel on Tuesday on an El Al plane, not everyone waiting in the arrivals terminal could breathe a sigh of relief.

Orit and Patrick Asraf came to greet the Israelis who returned in order to find out if any of them had information about their 22-year-old son, Or Asraf, who is among the 16 Israelis who are still “out of contact.”

Or, who had been wounded during Operation Protective Edge where he fought with the Egozi Brigade, had set out on a trek in Nepal’s Langtang region the morning the quake hit…

Or’s parents held up a sign at the airport that read: “Did anyone see Or Asraf?”

Orit and Patrick hoped that maybe someone returning would be able to shed light on their son’s whereabouts.

“We are very worried, we don’t know who he traveled to that area with and do not know if he traveled with Israelis,” said his mother Orit…

Please continue to pray for the many thousands who have been affected by the Nepalese earthquakes, as well as for the safe return of this family’s son, and all others who are still unaccounted for.
