On Wednesday, wife of captured IDF soldier Ehud Goldwasser, Karnit, received the tragic news she had feared for over two years, that her husband would not be coming home alive.

Though she didn't address the press on Wednesday, since Goldwasser and Regev's abduction in 2006, Karnit has been a symbol and leader of the international campaign to return the soldiers, in the process becoming a courageous and inspiring figure for many.

After the soldiers were returned home to Israel Wednesday, Karnit came to the Sharga Army Base to spend time with her family and her husband Ehud.
