TEL AVIV, Israel - Israel arrested 41 people overnight as part of a widening search for three missing teenagers that has also turned into a crackdown targeting militant group Hamas.
The operation dubbed "Brother's Keeper" expanded from the restive Palestinian city of Hebron in the southern West Bank to Nablus in the north, Israel Defense Forces spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said Tuesday. The military would not reveal how many soldiers were involved in the operation except to say that it included three infantry brigades, including paratroopers. http://www.nbcnews.com/storyline/west-bank-kidnappings/israel-expands-search-missing-west-bank-teens-targets-hamas-n132836Glad they are still hunting, and they WILL find the kids.
