Progress is being made in hunting down the terrorists responsible for kidnapping three Israeli teens in Gush Etzion last Thursday night.

Israeli authorities now know which Hamas wing was involved in the operation to abduct the boys, who were hitchhiking home for the Sabbath from the renowned Mekor Chaim Yeshiva in Kfar Etzion, where they learn during the week.

Communications Minister Gilad Erdan told an interviewer on Israeli public radio Wednesday morning that the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) is aware of which Hamas cell is responsible for kidnapping the teens.

An Egyptian official also has told international media on condition of anonymity that Cairo officials are also helping Israel to gather information about the whereabouts of the abducted yeshiva students.

“There is a flow of information but we are still short, so there is no negotiation,” the official told Reuters. He added that Egyptian officials are in contact with Hamas and other Palestinian Authority unity government factions.

  3. slow but sure those kids are dying you moron! !! move fast!

  4. America should be doing the same

  5. I blv they will bring back to home those boys with help of mighty God !! God bless and keep them safe

  6. The major problem is that actions taken are "too little & too late!" The question I have is why on earth did the security service here not implement a total lock-down on Judea?

    The 'war of terror' waged by the west is slowly unraveling. The clear and stated aim should have been the TOTAL destruction of terrorist networks and their supporters. This was never the case.

    Even today (Sunni) ISIS gain further ground in Iraq funded by exceedingly wealthy Saudi backers – and the world does nothing as the Christian population in Iraq is decimated to a fraction of what it was 3-years ago. There are more Christian Iraqis living in Chicago than in any one major Iraqi city!

    The Vatican says nothing? The Christian west says nothing?

    When will the world realize that this is a fight to the finish – winner takes all!

    Prime Minister Netanyahu, if you really mean business start to implement all sanctions available. Pleas G-d, it is not be too little or too late.

  7. Obama loves Hamas just remember that for those who voted Obama twice into office

  8. Wow they are brilliant good work shin bet

  9. I keep telling you to execute 10 prisoners a day until they are released. Listen please!

  10. more prayers for our troops to bring back the boys

  11. Keep rejoicing now. Our God is God who listens to His children. Believe you have seen the teenagers and Almighty God loves those who worship Him and praise Him. Amen
