(JNS.org) Israel’s security agency, the Shin Bet, revealed the identity of two terrorists involved in the kidnapping of Jewish teenagers Naftali Frankel, Gilad Shaar, and Eyal Yifrach.

The terrorist suspects were named as Marwan Quasma, 29, and Amar Abu Eisha, 32, both from Hebron and associated with Hamas.

When security forces learned of the kidnapping, “the Shin Bet and the IDF have been carrying out a wide-scale search aimed at capturing the wanted suspects. The first aim is to track down the location of the abducted youths,” the Shin Bet said Thursday.

Both men have a record of Hamas-related arrests and were involved in activities such as bomb-making training and Palestinian youth recruitment for the Gaza-based terrorist organization. Meanwhile, Israeli security forces arrested a number of other people this week suspected in involvement with the kidnapping.
