Following footage released by the Yamam elite counter-terrorism police unit showing the operation which killed the Hamas terrorists behind the brutal kidnap and murder of three Israeli teens in June, the IDF has released its own footage from the operation.

After a determined hunt for the killers - Marwan Kawasmeh and Amer Abu-Eisha - Shin Bet security services tracked them down to a compound in Hevron, not far from where the bodies of their victims, Eyal Yifrah, Gilad Sha'ar and Naftali Frenkel, were dumped.

After sealing off the house and attempting to arrest them, the terrorists opened fire - and were subsequently shot dead by Israeli security forces.
