Another kidnapping this week included a 16-year-old from Afula who was held for ransom on Thursday in a compound in Jaljulya. The victim was kidnapped as part of a conflict between two criminal groups.
The kidnappers posted a video demanding hundreds of thousands of shekels in exchange for his release. The video showed the kidnapped teen with his face covered, a gun and a fake sword held to his head.
