Update: Jewish Girl Rescued From Beit Jala Knew Kidnappers

Update: Police report the girl knew the Arabs who took her, from previous encounters she had with them.

Police are now interrogating the girl under suspicion.

Police say that it appears the girl got into the car of her own free will, but then the two men drove her to Beit Jala and locked her up in a building against her will.

The police know the identity of the two men, and will be arresting them soon.

In what appears to have possibly been another kidnapping attempt on Monday night, police rescued a 21 year old girl from Beit Jala, an Arab village just south of Jerusalem. The girl was grabbed from near Beitar Ilit in Gush Etzion, according to the Judea and Samaria police spokesman.

Between 10 and 11 PM, police say they received a phone call about a girl who was just kidnapped by two Arabs in a white car.

The girl works in the cafe/mini-market in the Sonol gas station near Beitar Ilit. She had met with a girlfriend after work and afterwards, as she was on her way home, a white car stopped, forcibly grabbed her, and drove off.

A local Beitar blogger claims the girl managed to call her friend and said she was kidnapped.

Using the missing girl’s number which they had from the girlfriend, the police and army were able to triangulate the missing girl’s position from the cellphone she was carrying.

The army and police found and retrieved her from a building inside the village of Beit Jala.

Beit Jala is in Gush Etzion, just opposite the neighborhood of Gilo in Jerusalem. It is best known for the shootings they used to do from the village into Gilo.

The girl was taken to the Gush Etzion police station where she is with her mother, as police question her further as to the exact circumstances around the event, and to confirm that it was a kidnapping.

Police are searching for the two suspects.

We will update this story when we have more details.
