Israel Steps Up West Bank Search For Missing Teens
Israel sent more troops to the occupied West Bank on Saturday to search for three missing teenagers it says were abducted by Palestinian Islamist group Hamas. The army said it had also arrested another 10 Palestinians during its hunt – the latest in a series of detentions and raids that have raised tensions and triggered street clashes in the West Bank. Hamas, which refuses to recognise Israel’s existence, has neither claimed nor denied responsibility for the disappearance of the youths, who went missing near an Israeli settlement on June 13. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has condemned the kidnapping of Gil-Ad Shaer and U.S.-Israeli national Naftali Fraenkel, both aged 16, and Eyal Yifrah, 19.
