The police announced they will form an investigation as to how and why the initial report of the kidnapping was ignored for 4 hours.
The first report of the kidnapping of the boys from Gush Etzion came in at 10:25 PM on Thursday, to the police’s 100 (like 911) emergency line.
The message wasn’t passed on to the police or the Shabak until 3:00 AM Friday morning, when one of the parents went to a police station to report his son missing.
Minister of the Internal Security Yitzchak Aharonovitz said the failure will be investigated.
