Senior security officials informed US Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro that one among Friday’s missing teens in the West Bank holds American citizenship at the conclusion of a meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Tel Aviv Friday where the security situation was discussed as the result of the possible kidnapping.

The Shin Bet and the IDF’s Central Command are treating the teens’ disappearance as a kidnapping by terrorists, because, among other things, their cell phones stopped broadcasting location signals at the same location they were last seen – between Kfar Etzion and the settlement Alon Shvut.
