(JNS.org) Hamas terrorists Marwan Qawasmeh and Amer Abu Aisheh—who kidnapped and murdered Israeli teens Gilad Shaar, Eyal Yifrach, and Naftali Frenkel in June—were killed Tuesday in a joint Israel Defense Forces, Israeli Police, and Shin Bet security agency operation in Hebron.

The bodies of the teens, who had been murdered shortly after they were abducted on June 12, were discovered on June 30 in a field west of the Palestinian village of Halhul, near Hebron.

Israeli security forces have conducted an extensive manhunt for Qawasmeh and Abu Aisheh over the past three months. IDF troops and the Police Counterterrorism Unit, operating on Shin Bet information, on Tuesday raided a Hebron house in which the terrorists were believed to be hiding, Army Radio reported. During the ensuing clash, Qawasmeh and Abu Aisheh exited the house and opened fire at the soldiers, who returned fire and killed both of the terrorists.
