Mothers of three kidnapped Israeli boys appeal for world help

In a brief impassioned speech to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva Tuesday, June 24, Rachel Fraenkel said: “It is wrong to take children and use them as instruments of war. Every child has the right to return home safely.” Twelve days after their sons, Naftali Fraenkel and Gil-Ad Shaeir, both 16, and Eyal Yifrach, 19, were kidnapped outside Hebron, their mothers arrived in Geneva to appeal for international help for their recovery. UN Watch, a non-profit organization, flew Rachel Fraenkel from Israel to Geneva Monday. The parents of the three boys met Friday with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon as the massive IDF search in the Hebron district began to wind down without turning up a trace of the abducted teenagers.
