IDF Spokesperson Brig. Gen. Moti Almoz held a press conference regarding the military operations to find the 3 boys kidnapped in the West Bank: "In the last day we have expanded our operations, arrested dozens of Hamas agents including members of the Palestinian Legislative Council like Hassan Youssef, one of the leaders of Hamas in the West Bank."
He added: "The southern West Bank is under curfew since last night to assure operational mobility. In the coming days we will continue to operate in large numbers across the territory. We will spare no effort to return the boys." (Itay Blumenthal)
