Three Israeli teenagers, one of whom is a US citizen, were kidnapped on June 12 from a bus stop in Gush Etzion, south of Bethlehem. The Israeli prime minister's office issued a statement holding the Palestinian Authority responsible for the youths. The kidnapping was claimed by two groups: one calling itself the West Bank branch of the Islamic State in Iraq and Sham (ISIS), and another called the Brigades of Global Jihad.
A group called Al-Sabirin [The Patient] for the Victory of Palestine a.k.a. Hosn, headed by former Islamic Jihad leader Hisham Salem, announced its formation as a resistance organization, and said its first martyr is Nizar Issa, who died in an explosion at a Gaza training camp in May. Tensions emerged between Fatah and Hamas despite last week's formation of a unity government.
Rival factions Hamas and Fatah announced plans to form a unity government in the next five weeks. US officials warned that the new government must recognize Israel and renounce violence, two conditions Hamas has never accepted. At least three people were hurt when an Israeli airstrike targeted a suspected terrorist.
