Forensic evidence from the bodies shows the boy fought back against his attackers.

One of the three boys kidnapped by Arab terrorists on June 12 gave a good accounting of himself and put up a fight before he was murdered, a source said.
The source is involved in the forensic identification process of three bodies found in a field near Halhul Monday evening and said one of the boys fought back against his attackers.
The source told the Walla! news site that forensic evidence being gathered at the Abu Kabir Institute shows that one of the teens put up meaningful resistance against the kidnappers.
The boys were abducted by terrorists while hitchhiking home from their yeshiva for the Sabbath, at a routine hitching stop in Gush Etzion. An IDF source told the news site that after the Arab terrorists grabbed the boys near the Jewish community of Alon Shevut, the vehicle they were traveling in headed west and then made a U-turn to go south towards Hevron.
Within minutes, at about 10:25 p.m., one of the boys called the 100″ police hotline, whispering into the cell phone, Ive been kidnapped. Weve been kidnapped! He then went silent, perhaps fearing his captors would discover he was using the phone. Shortly after the call was made, shots were fired and the phone went dead, a little more than two minutes later.
It is likely the terrorists decided to cut their losses and run. They had no way of knowing that police had bumbled the call, leaving open a window of more than five hours before anyone in supervision or above would even take the call seriously, let alone bother to follow it up. (At least four senior police officers have been dismissed as a result of that decision.)
Instead, the kidnappers likely believed that police would soon be on their tail and decided to end all doubts, murdering the boys and escaping with their own lives intact.
Within hours of starting their search, security forces found a burned-out vehicle, a rifle and bullet casings near the Palestinian Authority Arab village of Dura, slightly south of Hevron a hotbed of Hamas terrorists, among others. Its been searched repeatedly by IDF soldiers in the past 19 days.
But no kidnapped boys were found; no bodies and no perpetrators. The terrorists took just enough time to hurriedly transport and bury their victims bodies in a shallow cave that is barely visible in a farmers stony field, alongside the PA Arab village of Halhul another classic terrorist central stronghold.
Thanks to the determination and unending energy of tens of thousands of IDF soldiers, and the intensive efforts of the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) agents, searchers were led in the direction of that field Monday afternoon.
Despite fierce resistance from surrounding villagers who clearly knew what was concealed there, at last the searchers reached their first objective in Operation Brothers Keeper, and found the sad evidence they were looking for.
Let the memory of Eyal Yifrach, Naftali Frenkel and Gilad Shaar not fade, let their blood not have flowed in vain.
May there memories be for a blessing and may God avenge their blood.
May the soldiers of the IDF and the agents of the Shin Bet find success in the next phase of Operation Brothers Keeper as they continue their hunt for the murders of our boys.
Time for more carry conceal in Israel.
Wait until Iran sees the fight that Israel will put up before they allow those bizarre apocalyptic loving mullahs to obtain nuclear weapons.
weren’t one of these a US citizen?
Good for him. Better to go out on your feet than your knees.
Hopefully the “forensic evidence” included a pair or testicles clenched in his right hand.
Why would Bowbama and his horde say anything against his compatriots?
“Thanks to the determination and unending energy of tens of thousands of IDF soldiers, and the intensive efforts of the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) agents,”...I am thinking there was some “energetic” questioning of suspects that led to the location of the bodies.
Catch every animal involved...no court hearings, no lawyers, no time wasted...just hang the bastards in a public square and leave them there until their bodies rot.................
“...Palestinians whining on tv that Israel should not gin up the violence in the aftermath.”
If they want to avoid it, all they have to do is turn over the kidnappers, like any civilized people would.
When the perpetrators are discovered their families need to suffer. I mean every Aunt, Uncle, Cousin, Brother, Sister, should have their home bulldozed to the ground. The town they are from will receive ONE warning. Any further Terrorist acts committed by the citizens of this town and the town will be wiped off the map.
Message to all gutless child killers: If you harm an Israeli citizen you AND YOUR ENTIRE FAMILY and TOWN will pay the price in retribution.
Yes, and it boggles the mind that if only his parents hadn't been so "worldly", he could have been save and sound in his American home right now.
“Time for more carry conceal in Israel.”
Never happen. The only easy way is to own a jewelry store.
I have a buddy who used to let people “buy into” his store and become “part time” workers just for that reason.
In fact it's a family of terrorists. Multiple arrests for pop and his sons, one killed in a terror attack in 2005. This is what Israel is expected to make peace with.
“escaping with their own lives intact”
Hopefully not for long.
Gun ownership is highly restricted in Israel. Essentially only retired military or police, those living in Judea or Samaria, and dangerous occupations, which does include things like guards and taxi drivers. And then you own a handgun, as in one. Of course there’s lots of military, active and retired in Israel, so firearms are around.
