Palestinian Authority Arab terrorists, apparently from Islamic Jihad, have kidnapped the body of an 18-year-old Israeli Druze high school student.

Israel is pressuring the Palestinian Authority to immediately return the body to Israel, according to a report by Channel 13 military correspondent Or Heller.


The deceased was identified as Tiran Fero, a 12th grade student from the town of Daliat El Carmel who entered Jenin earlier in the day. He was critically injured Tuesday morning in a motor vehicle accident in Jenin. He was taken to a hospital in the terrorist hotbed city, where he later died.

The young man’s body was subsequently snatched from the hospital in Jenin by Islamic terrorists within the Palestinian Authority.

A second young man from the same Druze community was also injured in the accident; he was flown by Medivac helicopter to Rambam Medical Center in Haifa and currently listed in stable condition, according to a post on Facebook by a member of the Druze community.

“It is expected that [the young man’s body] will be returned to his family in Israel as soon as possible as a necessary humanitarian gesture,” an IDF spokesperson said.

“This is a 12th grade student, a member of a minority group. His family is in contact with security forces and strongly denies the claim of the hijacking terrorists that he was an ‘undercover’ soldier,” the IDF spokesperson said.

UPDATE: According to the boy’s uncle, the boy was alive when he was kidnapped by the terrorists. He was with his father in the hospital when gunman surrounded them, disconnected the boy from the life support machines and took him.
