Bennett Vows 'Iron' Response to Kidnapping; Blames PA Incitement


Jewish Home (Bayit Yehudi) Chairman and Economics Minister Naftali Bennett visited kidnapped teen Naftali Frenkel's family Sunday in Nof Ayalon, promising that Israel would do everything in its power to bring the boys home. Later, Bennett also visited the Yifrah family in Elad, where he also blamed the Palestinian Authority (PA) 'unity' pact with Hamas for the kidnappings.

"We will respond with an iron fist to terror," he said, urging the Jewish people to continue praying. "This is the time for the entire nation of Israel to increase our prayers and to stay unified, determined and strong. We will not be broken."
