Israel journalists say missing teenagers found dead

June 30, 2014 7:25 A.M. (Updated: July 1, 2014 12:19 A.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli journalists said Monday that security officials had discovered the bodies of three teenagers who went missing in the occupied West Bank on June 12.

A reporter from Israel's Haaretz newspaper wrote on Twitter that the teens' bodies were discovered. One of them said a news blackout had been imposed until an official announcement.

"There are indications that the Israeli army has found the bodies of the 3 kidnapped teens," Chaim Levinson tweeted.

Levinson deleted his tweet shortly after posting.

Al-Jazeera said that three bodies had been found west of Halhul near Hebron, citing Israeli sources.

According to the Al-Jazeera report, Israeli sources said it was confirmed that the bodies belonged to the three missing Israeli teenagers.

Israeli news site The Times of Israel said that Israel's security cabinet was to convene an emergency session at 9:30 p.m.

The site also reported that clashes had broken out between Palestinians and Israeli forces in Halhul.

An Israeli military spokeswoman told Ma'an the army was looking into the reports.

Three Israeli teenagers disappeared from the Gush Etzion settlement on June 12.

Israel has blamed Hamas for kidnapping the teens, but the Islamist movement has denied involvement.

Israeli forces launched a military search campaign in response, arresting hundreds of Palestinians and shooting five dead. Over 100 were also injured throughout the operation.
