JERUSALEM, ISRAEL (Worthy News)-- Israel Defense Forces (IDF) arrested nine Palestinian suspects overnight Thursday, and searched over 40 sites as Operation Brother's Keeper continued in search for the three kidnapped Israeli teenagers.

The IDF expects to redeploy its forces to coincide with the start of Ramadan Saturday, focusing on Gush Etzion and the Judea area.

"Forces are concentrated in the Etzion and Judea area, and are being led by the Kfir [infantry] Brigade commander, who is continuing to command over rolling operations, including [tightening] the intelligence circle," a military officer told the Jerusalem Post.

Shin Bet, Israel's Security Service, released the names of Amar Abu-Eisha, 33, and Marwan Kawasmeh, 29, longstanding Hamas members from Hebron as prime suspects in the abductions. Shin Bet identified the suspects within 24 hours of kidnapping.
