Home Front Defense Minister Gilad Erdan told Channel 2 on Sunday that Palestinian Authority security forces were "willingly" helping in the search for three yeshiva students who were kidnapped on Thursday night.
Palestinian authorities acknowledged the cooperation, drawing Hamas censure.

Erdan played down, however, the role of a Palestinian administration which Netanyahu wants world powers to pressure into dissolving the recently sworn-in Palestinian unity government.

Erdan said recovering the teenagers and dealing with their captors would be "almost entirely based on the Israeli military and security services."
