A senior official in the IDF said on Tuesday evening that "Operation Brother's Keeper," the search and counter-terror operation in Judea and Samaria following the abduction of three yeshiva youths, will not conclude in the near future.
"This is an ongoing battle that will not end in one week,” the official said. “Part of our strength is our ability to hold this campaign for a prolonged time period. We are hitting their corporate, political, financial infrastructure and more. Even if it fails to stop the next attack, it will have a long-term effect.”
