BREAKING: Bodies of three missing Israeli teens found near Hebron

BREAKING: Bodies of three missing Israeli teens found near Hebron
The three Israeli teens who were kidnapped and slain.

ABC News is reporting that the bodies of three Israeli boys believed to have been kidnapped by Hamas terrorists two and a half weeks ago were found north of the city of Hebron. One of the teens, 16-year-old Naftali Frenkel, had dual U.S.-Israeli citizenship. His family is from Brooklyn, N.Y. The two others were Gilad Shaar and Eyal Yifrach.

Hamas, the Palestinian militant group accused by Israel of taking the boys, has denied kidnapping the teens, though senior Israeli and Palestinian officials agree that the abductors were likely tied to — or part of — Hamas but operating without orders from the organization’s leadership.

The United States has officially approved of the terrorist Hamas organization’s participation in the Palestinian Authority government as long as they renounce terrorism — which they refuse to do.

As of this writing, Barack Obama has not made a public statement about the kidnapping and now murder of the three Israeli boys.
