Gaza, ALRAY - An Israeli senior officer said on Sunday that the ongoing Israeli military campaigns in the West Bank in hunt for the three missing setters are expected to be stalled within days, search operations will continue.
Hebrew Walla website mentioned that the Israeli occupation forces have conducted two parallel military campaigns in the West Bank; the first concentrated on Hebron in hunt for the missing settlers. However; the second included all areas in the West Bank with great aims, mainly, destroying the infrastructure of Hamas.
Some analytics pointed out that the reason behind stalling the operation is the growing tension and anger among Palestinians in the West Bank and to prevent breaking in of a new Intifada.
Israeli army has launched military campaigns in the West Bank killing at least five Palestinians, detaining more than 370, and raiding more than 1,100 sites including homes, offices, and universities in hunt for three settlers who were missed last June, 12 in the West Bank city of Hebron. Yet, no clear evidence the three settlers were abducted as Israel claimed.
