#AceBreakingNews – The three Israeli teenagers who went missing earlier this month in the West Bank have been found dead.
Naftali Frenkel, Gilad Shaar and Eyal Yifrach went missing near Hebron on 12 June
An Israeli military spokesman said their bodies were found in a pit near the town of Halhul, north of Hebron.
Naftali Frenkel and Gilad Shaar, both aged 16, and 19-year-old Eyal Yifrach were last seen at a junction near Hebron as they hitch-hiked home.
Israel had accused Hamas of abducting the three teens, which the Palestinian militant group repeatedly denied.
The teenagers’ families have been informed, the military said.
The Israeli military has set up blockades and closed down whole areas around Halhul, which is just a few kilometres from where the teenagers were last seen.
