Israeli Officials Reveal Identity of Two Main Suspects in Kidnapping of Teens
JNS.org – Israel’s security agency, the Shin Bet, revealed the identity of two terrorists involved in the kidnapping of the Jewish teenagers Naftali Frankel, Gilad Shaar and Eyal Yifrah.
The terrorist suspects were named as Marwan Quasma, 29, and Amar Abu Eisha, 32, both from Hebron and associated with Hamas.
When security forces learned of the kidnapping, “the Shin Bet and the IDF have been carrying out a wide-scale search aimed at capturing the wanted suspects. The first aim is to track down the location of the abducted youths,” the Shin Bet said Thursday, reported the Jerusalem Post.
Both men have a record of Hamas-related arrests and were involved in such things as bomb making training and Palestinian youth recruitment for the terrorist organization. Meanwhile Israeli security forces arrested a number of other people this week suspected in involvement with the kidnapping.
