Israel had vowed to track down Marwan Kawasme and Amer Abu Aysha, the two Hamas operatives who in June abducted Gil-Ad Shaer,16, Eyal Yifrah, 19, and Naftali Fraenkel, 16, three yeshiva students who were hitchhiking near Hebron.

A massive manhunt ensued, with police and military forces combing the area near Hebron in search of the boys. After three weeks, the bodies of the youths were discovered in a field near a Palestinian village.
