A cartoon which appeared on an official Fatah Facebook page on Sunday depicted three "Jewish" mice caught in what the caption calls a "Master stroke."

The cartoon was published soon after the kidnapping of three Israelis yeshiva students at the hands of terrorists while they were hitchhiking in Gush Etzion.

The post prompted angry responses from the page's followers decrying the sketch as "disgusting" and "shameful". The same post also received several expressions of ridicule.

The Fatah promotional page also depicted several posts mirroring the social media movement "Bring Back Our Boys" which supports the three kidnapped students and calls for their safe return.

In the Fatah site's parallel posts, "Bring Back Our Boys" refers to the arrest of young Palestinians in what the Israeli security forces have called a tightening of intelligence, measures being taken to find the kidnapped boys.
