As of Motzei Shabbat (Saturday evening), the IDF has released no new information on the boys believed to have been kidnapped from Gush Etzion.
The three boys have been identified as Eyal Yifrach (19) from Elad, Naftali Frankel (16) from Nof Ayalon and Gil-ad Sheyar (16) from Talmon.
Defense Minister Ya’alon said they are working on the assumption that the boys are still alive.
Roadblocks have been set up to prevent the boys from being transferred to the Sinai or Gaza.
The IDF has told the Palestinian Authority security services to not participate in the physical search, but to supply them with information.
The search is still concentrating around the Hebron area, and soldiers are going house to house.
Arabs are throwing stones at IDF soldiers involved in the search.
A burnt-out car was found on Friday, that is suspected as playing a role in their disappearance.
For those that want to say a prayer for the boys, their Hebrew names are:
Yaacov Naftali ben Rachel יעקב נפתלי בן רחל
Gilad Michael ben Bat Galim גילעד מיכאל בן בת גלים
Ayal ben Iris Tshura אייל בן איריס תשורה
