BREAKING STORY: Yeshiva Bochrim Kidnapped by Arab Terrorists From Gush Etzion [UPDATED 17:00 IL]



The talmidim of the Mekor Chaim Yeshiva, Naftali ben Rachel and Gilad Michael ben Bat Galim, were abducted from the Gush Etzion area on Thursday night. The rumors of missing or abducted Jewish youths began spreading during the night, increasing on Friday morning 15 Sivan. There were limited Facebook postings with information of a terrorist kidnapping and then came the messages of a gag order. The Facebook postings were removed and the silence was palpable amid the increasingly ominous rumors on the outcome of the situation.

One of the tidbits of information spoke of a “last call made by the boys to the police 100 dispatcher from the Gush Etzion area and then the phone went dead”.

Additional information to be provided as it is cleared.

  1. I just received a tweet at 10:26 am (EST) from the IDF and it says ‘Our mission now is to bring the three missing teenagers back home safely.’
    So it does not seem like they are home.
    Everybody should continue to say Tehillim.

  2. To poshiteryid1:
    These are boys that are in a yeshiva high school for boys who then either go to the army or go to hesder and then the army. Hashem should keep them safe and they should be found alive and healthy and no soldiers should be hurt.

  3. Time to start putting a bounty on the kidnap of Palestinian youths. If you bring a butter knife to a street fight it doesn’t end well.

    you’re outright vicious and coldblooded to mix in this discussion at a time when there should be no division between any of us.

  5. To geula :I wrote my comment , when mistakenly was announce, that tragedy was averted.And i meant that this was something to think about …..
