Clashes between IDF troops and 'Palestinians' north of Hebron

There are reports of clashes between IDF troops and 'Palestinians' in Halhoul, north of Hebron (the area where that burning car was found the night the boys were kidnapped) as the announcement with respect to the kidnapping has been postponed to 8:15 Israel time - about ten minutes from now.

The security cabinet was to meet at 8:00 amidst reports of 'dramatic developments' in the investigation.
Israel’s security forces arrested six Palestinians Sunday night in an ongoing effort to find three kidnapped Israeli teens.
The IDF said that five of the suspects were members of Hamas from Hebron, where the military has been concentrating its search, and one was from the Ramallah area.
IDF Spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner confirmed that all of the arrests were made in connection with the search for the teens.
Israeli authorities on Thursday named two Hamas members as prime suspects in the kidnapping.
The two, Amer Abu Aysha and Marwan Kawasme, have been missing from their homes in Hebron’s Hares neighborhood ever since the kidnapping took place on the night of June 12 and are still at large.
Hamas officials in Hebron confirmed the two suspects were members, and said Israeli troops have targeted the men’s homes since the beginning of Operation Brother’s Keeper. The officials said troops had entered the homes several times, conducting intense searches and confiscating items as evidence.
We can only hope and pray that those kids are alive and well and that God Will Grant their parents the strength to deal with whatever follows.
