The bodies of Naftali Fraenkel, Eyal Yifrah and Gil-Ad Shaer were found in a cave following a geological survey carried out by civilian volunteers, head of the Kfar Etzion search team Yaron Rozenthal told Channel 10.

"This is a very sad day, but there's also some relief for the country and for the families in the discovery," he said. "In cooperation with the IDF we managed to bring back our boys, although not in the way we'd hoped."
