Three teenage boys are thought to have been kidnapped on Thursday night. The army has just partially released the gag order on the event.

They boys were on their way home at the time from Yeshiva, and are believed to have been kidnapped near a Gush Etzion hitchhiking post.

IDF troops and other security forces are running a massive search operation, scouring the area looking for them, concentrating on the Hebron area.

False rumors have been flying around Israel all day as to the status of the search and the boys, particularly via WhatsApp.

Prime Minister Netanyahu has spoken with the families of the three boys.

No other information  is permitted for publication at this time.

    I hope they can be found. The Army or the police must go to the nearest Arab town and do a house-to-house search.

  2. kidnap all the arabs and bomp them

  3. third intifada bomp it

  4. Edward Lobel says:

    Since there is a 1000 to 1 ration of worth, that's 1,000 arabs to 1 Jew, the IDF should "kidnap" 3,000 arab youths and offer them back in exchange for the 3 Jews boys. If any harm comes to the Jewish boys, then harm should come to the 3,000 arab children. You need to fight fire with fire and if they harm Jewish Children then Arab children should be hurt in kind at the 1000 to 1 ratioo!

  5. Chaiya Eitan says:

    As you light Shabbat candles say a prayer for the safe return of these boys.

  6. Robert Davis says:

    All arab villages in the neighborhood should be razed and villagers expelled to Jordan across the river from army makeshift bridges.

  7. Brenda Schooler says:

    Prayers will be said for the safe return of these young boys. Amen

    THIS IS THE ISRAELI GOVERNMENTS Fault ! They allow these animals to stone and kill JEWS and then BIBI and all the fools do nothing!!!!!!!!

  9. John Kerry…..If it turns out that these innocent boys are victims of terrorists, it means that you are way more foolish regarding peacemaking with Israel's foes than I thought

    I pray they will be found unharmed.

    When the terrorists are found, the Israeli Government will exchange them or just give them back to the Palestinians. This is a non story.

  13. Nice Guy says:

    so easy to get them back…..how….shut off electric/aircond/heat/food etc to GAZA…..shut down ALL colleges that are teaching ARABS……play dumb as if its mechanical failure and your are working on it….meanwhile say the three boys got lost and we are counting on (and name different groups) our friends/associates/ PA/HAMAS/etc etc to help us find them. We would really be so thankful if they are found alive and well. EVERYTIME anyone asks about the problems in Gaza ignore them and reply ….we are overwhelmed with looking for the missing three boys which is taking up 100% of the time and efforts of all Israeli services…..as soon as the boys are found alive and well , we will be able to devote much more time to restoring services to Gaza which while important to us is on the back burner till the three boys are found alive and well. we are asking our ARAB neighbors to help us find the boys alive and well.

  14. Nice Guy says:

    if they realize you are serious about wanting those boys back alive and well…they will "FIND" them and live and well and you should give lots of public credit and thanks to them and even present them with a written large thankyou AWARD for their help!!! meanwhile the boys will be alive and well…………..also if the boys turn up dead…then 10 million dollars should be taken from ARAB taxes that Israel collects for arabs and that money should be given to each of the boys families…..the arabs will be MUCH MORE RELUCTANT to harm/kill our youth again if they believe they will suffer significant financial losses for killing our people! I am not kidding …IT WILL WORK WONDERS>>>>there will be no more of those killings! in fact if they knew in advance (QUIETLY tell them do not publicize it) they would lose the money the boys would be found (IF they believe you are serious…so then you might have to publicize it…but seriousness and not lies are needed to get the arabs to return the boys alive and well)

  15. Absolute rubbish and you are supposed to be a Top Commentator. It is that type of attitude that causes this disgusting type of incident to spiral out of control. Niceguy and Brenda Schooler have the right response.

  16. Maybe now the Yeshiva world will take notice that the Israeli government and the soldiers are not and have never been the enemy.

  17. Praying for there safe return

  18. My prayers that the boys will be returned unharmed.

  19. Edward Lobel says:

    So you think withholding $10 million is a good form of punishment should these 3 Jewish boys be found dead? Don't forget we could also turn off their lights!
    If you think this would help then you are extremely foolish!
    You fight fire with fire and if they hurt you, you hurt them back in a bigger way. If you think they are ever going to stop because money is with held or you turn off their lights you have no idea of what you are talking about and need to be quiet before everyone knows just how foolish you are.

  20. Gene Strong says:

    Stop trading terrorist prisoners back to terrorists for civilians they kidnap….that is just plain stupid..

  21. Anonymous says:

    The penalty for kidnapping is execution. It is a legitimate penalty. Keep it in mind!

  22. Nice Guy says:

    the boys were kidnapped probably because of the release of 5 top terrorist killer LEADER BIGSHOTS by the whitehouse….so the terrorists in Israel think…okay we can do same thing and get 2000 killers released from Israeli jails…they probably already told this to Israeli prime minister but he is afraid to mention it because he does NOT want to be forced to deal with that and he sees how USA public was furious with white house for releasing killers! So…..Israel needs to immediately make the arabs NEED Israel to do them a favor: losing the 100 million arab tax money//losing electricity in gaza /// losing colleges for arabs will make them want to suddenly "FIND" the boys alive and win praise from Israel and from Israeli newspapers (yes reporters should be IN ON SAVING THE BOYS BY PRAISING ARAB TERRORISTS FOR FINDING THE LOSE BOYS who should be told to keep mouth shut they were LOST not captured!

  23. Millie Kashuk says:

    with HOPE AND PRAYER THEY WILL FIND THESE YOUNG BOYS PLEASE HASHEM BRING THEM HOME……

  24. Dorothy Andreassend says:

    Dear Lord G-d we remember your children of long ago, recorded in your Holy Word. They were in the fiery furnace as your precious children are today . You brought them forth unharmed. We ask for this in our day. Praise you Lord G-d.

  25. Nice Guy says:

    I have yet to see one comment by anyone govt official or otherwise who has the slightest suggestion/hint/idea on how to save the three boys…I gave three posts that told HOW the boys could MOST LIKELY be "found" alive and unhurt…but time is of the essence….longer the boys are not "found" the more chance of injury to the boys….if no one has any ideas of what to do…then try my ideas…..they WILL WORK! why not! they make complete sense! think carefully and DO IT!

  26. Nice Guy says:

    another idea….quietly tell terrorists that every day ten terrorists in our prisons will be executed till boys found alive (DO NOT publicize this…but terrorists will know they are executed!) and if boys are killed then one thousand terrorists in jails will be executed in one or two days (fast!) WITH NO ADVERIZING ALL SECRET AND QUIET BUT TERRORISTS WILL KNOW!!! BY KEEPING IT ALL QUIET (AND THAT MEANS NEWS REPORTED FACE JAIL TIME FOR BLOWING WHISTLE!) AND NEWSPAPERS CLOSED FOR ONE MONTH!
    THE TERROISTS WILL WORK WITH YOU ONCE THEY REALIZE YOU SPEAK THE TRUTH/ARE UNAFRAID TO GET EVEN WITH THEM FOR HURTING THE BOYS OR BLOWING UP BUS ETC//AND THAT YOU ARE NOT LOOKING TO EMBARRASS THEM PUBLICALLY SO THEY CAN MAKE QUIET DEALS WITH YOU…THEN LET THE TERRORISTS BE PRAISED FOR FINDING THE BOYS AND SAVING THEM FROM BEING LOST OR KIDNAPPED BY OTHERS ETC…..WHAT MATTERS IS THAT THE DEAL WILL WORK OUT….WHEN THEY REALIZE YOU CAN BE TRUSTED TO KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT AND NOT EMBARRASS THEM AND TRUSTED TO KILL THEM IF THEY DON'T DO RIGHT BY YOU AND RELEASE THE BOYS OR STOP BLOWING UP BUSES THEN THEY WILL MAKE DEALS WITH YOU! THEY WILL RESPECT YOU! NOW THEY HAVE NO RESPECT CAUSE YOU ONLY DO STUFF OUT OF FEAR OF THEM AND YOU NEED TO MAKE THEM OF FEAR OF YOU AND TO MAKE A "MUTUAL RESPECT" BETWEEN YOU FOR WORKING OUT DEALS! IT WILL WORK!!!

  27. Run Guo says:

    If boys are dead. Gaza must be leveled to send a loud signal. Level those terrorist towns one by one till the job is done. Otherwise such tragedy WILL repeat for eternity. MAY G.D RETURN THEM SAFELY.

  28. Dorothy Rachel Leah More says:

    I AGREE, CUT OFF THE WATER, PLOW THEM DOWN, ENOUGH ALREADY!!!!!

  29. Bobby Harris says:

    I have heard that one boy is an American so I am getting a bit stunned to hear this. I am gonna wait see if it is true if so then we are in trouble because these hamas don't take anything for granted if these terrorist did indeed kidnap them they will either turn them over to someone or kill them, they did warn Israel they are planning to kidnap IDF soldiers and civilians in which I think that its what it is. they kidnapped them as they were civilians, so now Israel has to try to find them but I assure you they will find them, they have many ways to do that god is one he will help them find them alive if they are alive we need to pray for them indeed

  30. God Bless and safe boy’s,,,,
