“It was a complex, large-scale and daring operation. That’s all that can be said at the moment. We made another effort on the way to understanding what happened to Ron,” tweeted Bennett.

Lt. Col. Arad has been classified as “missing in action” ‎since October 1986, when his plane went down over Lebanon. He successfully ejected himself but was ‎captured by the local Shi’ite terrorist group Amal.

The captured navigator was learned to have been handed over to Hezbollah, and ‎later, maybe to Iran.

Arad was married and had one daughter.
