(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) Three Israeli teens from the Jewish settlement of Kfar Etzion, between occupied Jerusalem and Al-Khalil (Hebron), have disappeared since last night, Israel Radio reported on Friday.
The Israeli security forces have been searching Al-Khalil and Bethlehem as well as other West Bank towns in a bid to account for the missing youths who are students of Yeshiva - a Jewish religious institute.
The security forces stormed a home in Dawara village near Al-Khalil, arrested two Palestinian brothers there, and sealed off the town.
They are trying to determine whether there is a relationship between a burnt car, found in the area, and the possible kidnap of the three teens.
Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu chaired a meeting with Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon and Interior Minister Gideon Sa'ar to discuss the issue.
A statement by his office held the Palestinian authority responsible for the safety of the three students, according to the report.
