IDF’s Working Assumption is that Missing Teens Are Alive


eyal-yifrah-gilad-shaar-naftali-frenkelAs the tefillos continue around the world, in every single Jewish community, for the wellbeing of our brothers in captivity, the IDF’s mammoth effort to locate the boys who have been missing for 10 days was concentrated in western Chevron today.

A senior officer said tonight that three infantry brigades – the Paratroopers, Nahal and Kfir – are now concentrating their efforts on Highway 35 and Highway 60 in the Hevron area.

“We are going from house to house, location to location, to bring about the locating of the three abductees,” the officer said, according to Arutz Sheva. He stressed that there is no precise intelligence yet about the boys’ location and that the IDF’s activity is based on estimates and cross-checking of data.

“The ‘golden’ piece of information has not yet arrived,” he said. “Our working assumption is that the boys are alive.”

Arutz Sheva reported that Paratroopers’ Brigade Commander Col. Eliezer Toledano said tonight that the operations’ aims are threefold: find the abductees, catch the abductors and smash Hamas’s terror infrastructure in Chevron.

“I believe that we will find them. We proceed with that faith day and night,” he said.
