Three Teenage Youths Abducted from the Gush Etzion Junction in Judea

(The situation as of June 15, 2014, 1400 hours)

The three youths who were abducted (left to right): Naftali Frenkel, Gil-Ad Shaer and Eyal Yifrah


1. At 2200 hours on Thursday, June 12, 2014, three teenage youths left the Gush Etzion yeshiva where they were students and headed for home; they did not arrive. The Israeli security forces began searching for them on the following morning, Friday, June 13, 2014. The working assumption of the Israeli security forces is that they were abducted when they hitched a ride at the Gush Etzion junction.

2. The three are Eyal Yifrah, 19, from the village of Elad, who studied at the Shavei Hebron yeshiva; Naftali Frenkel, 16, from the village of Nof Ayalon, who also holds American citizenship; and Gil-Ad Shear, 16, from the village of Talmon, both of whom studied at the Mekor Chaim yeshiva in Kfar Etzion.

3. On the morning of Friday, June 13, 2014, a burned-out Hyundai was found near the village of Dura (near Hebron), and according to security sources, the vehicle is linked to the abduction. The Israeli security forces initiated a broad search focusing on the Hebron region, which is still ongoing.
