Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas gave a speech at a Fatah conference in Ramallah on Friday night welcoming the widespread support of the international community for the newly inked Fatah-Hamas unity government.

He failed to mention the disappearance of three yeshiva students from the West Bank that occurred earlier on Friday. The three teens were feared to have been kidnapped for the purpose of negotiating the release of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails.

During his speech, Abbas called for end to "suffering" of Palestinian prisoners in Israel.
