Israel maintains gag order in missing teens’ case, leading to charge of media ‘manipulation’

The Israeli government has imposed a gag order on journalists covering the apparent abduction of three Jewish teens in the West Bank last week to keep media from reporting details of its investigation. According to social media and our source, the order has suppressed reporting on an emergency call made by one of the abducted youths that many have heard. A widespread rumor is that the sound of gunshots can be heard on the call. The rumors have fed reports on social media that Israel’s West Bank operations are not focused on finding the teens alive– but that pretext is necessary for it to prolong the operation.
