What You Need to Know About the Israel-Hamas Crisis
Kidnapped and Murdered
The latest round of the violent conflict began with the kidnapping of three Israeli teenagers, one with American citizenship, as they attempted to hitchhike home from seminary school in the West Bank on June 12, 2014. The Israeli military launched a widespread campaign to locate Eyal Yifrach, Naftali Fraenkel and Gilad Shaer, resulting in the detention of nearly 300 Palestinians. The teens were ultimately found dead on June 30.
