Prime Minister Ehud Olmert is planning on declaring the two soldiers kidnapped by Hizbullah in the summer of 2006 dead, the German weekly magazine, Der Spiegel reported on Saturday.
According to the report, no date has yet been set for an official announcement on the subject, but unnamed sources told the magazine that they expect it to be made soon.
Although the Prime Minister’s Office did not immediately respond to the report, a government official told Israel Radio that there was still no new, definitive information about kidnapped IDF soldiers Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev.
The official added that Israel still believes that the two reservists are alive, and continues in negotiations with Hizbullah through mediators.
