Israeli youth claims she was 'kidnapped' in Beit Jala

JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli police investigations revealed Tuesday that a youth, 21, who claimed she was kidnapped by Palestinians in Beit Jala, was in fact in a vehicle with “people she already knows”.

A Ma'an reporter said that the Israeli police met with two youths that she claimed “kidnapped” her, to investigate them.

The Jerusalem police had received a call by a Jewish youth from Jerusalem saying that his friend, who works in a gas station near Betar Illit, was kidnapped by two Palestinians in their car, and that she was kept in a building near the Palestinian town.

Israeli forces in Hebron and Gush Etzion tracked the phone call until they found her in a building in Beit Jala.

The youth said she finished her work and met a Jewish friend and went to a passenger station while speaking on the phone with her friend, who later called the police when a white vehicle stopped and “forced her inside”.

The Israeli police and forces were still searching the area for the two suspects, while the girl and her mother were sent to Gush Etzion's police center to testify and report more details.

It was later determined by the police that she was not kidnapped and that she knew the two Palestinians and went inside their vehicle on her own.
