Herzog: Abbas Promised Help in Search for Teens


Speaking to a Holon audience over the weekend, Labor Party head MK Yitzhak Herzog said that Palestinian Authority chief Mahmoud Abbas had personally promised that he would help Israeli forces find kidnapped Israeli teens Eyal Yifrah (19), Naftali Frenkel (16), and Gilad Sha'ar (16).

“Abbas promised me that he would ensure that his forces cooperate in the search for the kidnapped children and work to reduce the threats by Hamas to Israeli citizens,” Herzog said. Already, he added, Abbas had given Israel a great deal of assistance, and he promised to continue for as long as necessary.
