IDF Official: Operation Continues 'Full Throttle'

The IDF is continuing its search for kidnapped Israeli teens Eyal Yifrah (19), Naftali Frenkel (16), and Gilad Sha'ar (16). A top army official said that on Wednesday soldiers checked 136 locations that may be connected with the kidnapping, and with Hamas terrorists. “We are continuing to move full-throttle on this operation,” the official said.

The official's statement reflected a decision Wednesday night by the security cabinet to continue the Operation Brother's Keeper until the three youths are returned home.
