Police estimate "kidnapping" incident was dispute between Palestinians.
The IDF adjourned its searches for the night in the south Jerusalem neighborhood of Betar Illit following earlier reports of a kidnapping, and is due to resume the search operation on Friday. However, police estimated that since no one was reported missing in the neighborhood it seemed that the incident was a dispute between two Palestinian workers. The neighborhood's security control center had told Judea and Samaria Police that, according to an eight-year-old girl, it appeared that a haredi man was dragged into a car by two Palestinians near the neighborhood's border with Kfar Naalin. The girl said that she had witnessed the incident from her bedroom window. IDF trackers discovered signs on the ground that seemed to indicate that someone was forcibly dragged near a construction site where Palestinians are employed. The mayor of Betar Illit said no one there was reported missing and, after checking the yeshivot in the ultra-Orthodox neighborhood, police said that all the students were accounted for.
