(Communicated by the Prime Minister’s Media Adviser)

The security establishment is continuing to act in order to clarify the fate of Ron Arad and bring him back home.  Over the years, many reports have been received from various sources, some of them official, regarding Ron Arad.  The security establishment and the intelligence community have checked all of the reports but – to our regret – Israel has no proof regarding his fate.  The State of Israel will continue to make every effort in order to resolve this painful case and will not rest until Ron Arad’s fate is known and he is brought back home.
