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.
