Israel’s nearly three-week vigil for three teens kidnapped in Judea-Samaria (West Bank), including one with U.S. citizenship, ended grimly Monday, with the discovery of their bodies just north of Hebron.
BREAKING: Israeli prime minister in response to deaths of kidnapped teens: “Hamas will pay.” (And unlike the weasel in the White House, he means it)
FOX News The search for Eyal Yifrach, 19; Gilad Shaar, 16; and Naftali Frenkel, also 16, who were snatched while hitchhiking, ended even as Israeli forces were conducting raids in the West Bank, where Hamas operates. Frenkel holds dual U.S.-Israeli citizenship. Sources said the bodies were found in a shallow grave in an open field. Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu was expected to speak on the discovery later Monday.
The Muslim-in-Chief gets off the golf course long enough to urge Israel not to retaliate against the ‘Palestinians’ for the murder of Eyal Yifrach, Gil-Ad Shaer, and Naftali Frenkel ‘– who held Israeli and American citizenship.
US President Barack Obama expressed his condolences Monday evening to the three bereaved families: “On behalf of the American people I extend my deepest and heartfelt condolences to the families of Eyal Yifrach, Gil-Ad Shaer, and Naftali Frenkel – who held Israeli and American citizenship. As a father, I cannot imagine the indescribable pain that the parents of these teenage boys are experiencing.”
He added: “The United States condemns in the strongest possible terms this senseless act of terror against innocent youth. I also urge all parties to refrain from steps that could further destabilize the situation.
