The Israeli media reported Monday that the bodies of the three Israeli teens who had been kidnapped were found north of Hebron, a solemn end to the three-week search for the boys.
Eyal Yifrach, Gild Shaar, and Naftali Frenkel were kidnapped on June 12 while hitchhiking in the West Bank. Israeli and Palestinian officials agreed that the kidnapping was likely tied to Hamas. Israel has “unequivocal proof that this is Hamas,” Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu said earlier this month. The Palestinian militant group denies the accusation.
Sources told Fox News that the bodies of the three teenagers were found in a shallow grave in an open field.
Frenkel, who was 16, held dual U.S.-Israeli citizenship.
