The Palestinian Authority rejected over the weekend Israeli charges that it was responsible for the safety of three yeshiva students who went missing in the West Bank late Thursday.



Palestinian officials in Ramallah, meanwhile, confirmed PA President Mahmoud Abbas had instructed his security forces to assist in the manhunt for the youths.

The officials said Abbas issued his instructions even before he received a phone call from US Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday evening regarding the latest developments surrounding the case of the missing students.
