Red Cross Calls for Release of Kidnapped Youths

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) on Sunday called for the immediate and unconditional release of the three Israeli teenagers who were kidnapped by terrorists last week.

“We are very concerned by the fate of the teenagers. International humanitarian law prohibits abduction as well as the taking of hostages,” Robert Mardini, head of ICRC operations in the Middle East, said in a statement.
