President Shimon Peres spoke Saturday with the parents of the three kidnapped boys and expressed his support. "I know you are going through difficult days of tension and anxiety. I want to stress that we are one – the entire Israeli people are with you right now," Peres said.
"Israel's security forces are operating in the field and are doing whatever they can to return your, and our, precious sons home," added Peres. (Noam 'Dabul' Dvir)
