    Hamas Abducted U.S. Teen

    Israel Defense Forces

    As the search for three kidnapped teenagers enters its fourth day, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on the Palestinian Authority to take responsibility and help in the search. He and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas spoke for the first time in over year. "The abductors from Hamas came from an area under Palestinian Authority control and returned to PA-controlled territory," Netanyahu said. Secretary of State John Kerry said the U.S. is still gathering information, but "many indications point to Hamas’ involvement." In total, 150 Palestinians have been arrested in the search for the Israeli teenagers Gilad Shaar, 16, Eyal Yifrach, 19, and Naftali Frenkel, 16, who is a dual American citizen. A Palestinian was also killed in clashes with Israeli forces in Ramallah. The teens have been missing since Thursday night when they tried to get a ride home from their religious school in Gush Etzion, which is a block of settlements south of Jerusalem.  Right after the abduction, one of the teens managed to call the police hotline and say “We’ve been kidnapped.”
