Three high school students of Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz’s Mekor Chaim Yeshiva were reportedly kidnapped by Arab terrorists in the West Bank last night.
The three – Naftali ben Rachel Devorah, Gilad Michael ben Bat Galim, Eyal ben Iris Teshurah – were erroneously reported rescued by IDF commandos from the Arab village of Avarta near Hebron.
Unfortunately, the boys are still missing.
No more details have yet been made public.
Update 11:05 pm CDT – Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza are reportedly celebrating the kidnappings, are flying Palestinian and Hamas flags and handing out candy to children. Palestinians held in Israeli prisons for terrorism-related crimes are reportedly posting celebratory messages on social media sites, as well.
One of the three kidnapped boys – who are 16, 16 and 19 – is reportedly an American citizen.
