Economy Minister Naftali Bennett told the families of the three kidnapped youth on Sunday that the government will turn over every rock inorder to bring their children home.
"Kidnapping children will not be an event that passes quietly and it will be clear to all groups involved, the terrorists those that sent them and those that support them, that such operations do not pay," the Bayit Yehudi minister said.
"We will respond with an iron fist to terror. This is the time for the entire nation of Israel to increase our prayers and to stay unified, determined and strong. We will not be broken," he added.
Bennett said kidnapping eleventh graders was a moral low point for the terrorists.
Opposition and coalition politicians have expressed support
for the government’s efforts to bring back the three teenage boys kidnapped by terrorists.
