Behind the Headlines: Six months (and 24 years) in terrorist captivity (UPDATED)

From the Ministry of Foreign Affairs:
Six months have passed since the unprovoked abduction of Eldad Regev and Ehud Goldwasser on the Israeli side of the Lebanese border, and of Gilad Shalit on the Israeli side of the border with Gaza.

(...)To date no word has been heard from the two captive soldiers, and neither their families nor the government of Israel have any knowledge of their whereabouts or their current state of health.
Two weeks prior to their abduction, another soldier, Gilad Shalit, was abducted as well, this time on the Israeli side of the border with Gaza. His family, too, anxiously awaits news from him. Especially grave is the fact that these unprovoked abductions were carried out on sovereign Israeli territory.
Read the following brief bios of the three. For their sakes, and for ours.

...and thanks to a swift kick in the reminder by A Town Crier, do absolutely not forget Zvi Feldman, Yehuda Katz, Guy Hever, Zachary Baumel and Ron Arad.

Oh, and by the way, there's also a $10,000,000 reward for anyone providing information leading to them that is "reliable, up-to-date and fully verifiable."
