BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The Israeli army will continue to surround Hebron, erecting checkpoints and raiding houses, until it receives further information on three missing teens, an Israeli official said Sunday.

Israel's Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories told Ma'an via telephone that the siege on Hebron would continue, resulting in the restriction of movement of over 20,000 Palestinian workers and businessmen who work in Israel.

Israeli military operations will continue in Hebron unless new information on the teens' whereabouts leads the army elsewhere, Yoav Mordechai said.

The army is not coordinating with Palestinian Authority security forces, Mordechai added.

He reiterated Israeli officials' claims that Hamas was behind the kidnapping of the youths, without providing information as to evidence behind the claims.

Hamas has denied involvement.

Three Israelis, aged 16-19, disappeared Thursday night from nearby the Jewish-only settlement of Gush Etzion.

Israeli forces have erected checkpoints throughout Hebron and nearby villages following the disappearance of three Israeli teenagers Thursday night.

Hebron residents are being prevented from leaving the West Bank throughout the search.

As the siege continue, Netanyahu was quoted as saying that the search of the teenagers will drag a long time. My 64 million dollars question is how does he know it's going to take a long time. They might return tomorow or a day after. Israel knows where they are and they going to play that kidnapping scenario for a long time.
