Israel takes 150 in custody in search for missing teens
The IDF doesn’t play around!
CNN reports Israeli soldiers have so far detained more than 150 Palestinian suspects in the search for three teens that Israel says were kidnapped, the military announced Sunday.
Among those detained were Hamas leaders and operatives, the military said.
“We are determined to bring them home and bring the perpetrators of their abduction to justice,” said Lt. Col. Peter Lerner.
The teens went missing in Jewish settlements in the West Bank late last week.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has blamed Hamas.
“Those who perpetrated the abduction of our youths were members of Hamas — the same Hamas that Abu Mazen made a unity government with,” he said Sunday. “This has severe repercussions.”
Abu Mazen is another name for Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.
