JERUSALEM, AP -Israeli television on Wednesday reported that witnesses said they saw an Israeli soldier apparently kidnapped while he was hitchhiking north of Tel Aviv.

The army said it was checking the reports but had no immediate comment. Police in the area said they were investigating to see if the claim was true.

Israel’s Channel 2 said that police had received a phone call from a soldier hitchhiking north of Tel Aviv who saw a vehicle he said looked suspicious. Another broadcaster, Channel 10 reported that witnesses saw a soldier forced into a vehicle in the same area.

Israel’s two-front offensive against Islamic militants began on June 25 when Hamas-linked guerrillas in the Gaza Strip carried out a cross-border attack on a military outpost in Israel, killing two soldiers and capturing one.

Lebanon’s Hezbollah guerrillas joined the fray on July 12, attacking a military patrol on the border in northern Israel, killing three soldiers and capturing two.
