The Facebook page Bring Back Our Boys, also established on June 13, has more than 93,000 likes.
“This page is part of our campaign to raise awareness about the kidnapping of three innocent young Israeli boys, on their way home from school, by the Hamas terrorist organization,” according to the description in the About section. People from around the world have posted photos of themselves on the page holding signs reading #BringBackOurBoys.

On Tuesday, the White House issued its first statement about the kidnapping, posting it on Twitter.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the 3 teens who were kidnapped last week,” the tweet reads. “May they be reunited with their families soon.”
