The Israel Border Police's vaunted YAMAM counter-terrorist unit on Tuesday stormed a building in Hebron that was housing the wanted Palestinians suspected of kidnapping and murdering three yeshiva students in June.

In the raid, the team of crack commandos exchanged gunfire with the wanted Palestinians, killing them.

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.
