I just read this morning that Benjamin Netenyahu states that there is irrefutable evidence that the three Israeli yeshiva boys were kidnapped by Hamas. Soldiers and others are going throughout Judea and Samaria looking for the students, and many militants have been arrested. This is a poster which was hung up all over asking women as they light the candles for Shabbat (at 7:27pm this past Shabbat) to remember the boys and to pray for them.
While this is going on, there has also been an escalation in tension with Gaza. Rockets have been shot into Southern Israel and the Israeli Air Force has responded.
