In Pictures: How the IDF is Bringing Back Our Boys

“Blessed be the Lord, my rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle.” (Psalm 144:1)

As Israel enters the sixth day since Eyal Yifrah, 19, Gilad Shaar, 16, and Naftali Frenkel, 16, were abducted by terrorists in Judea, the IDF is leaving no stone unturned in searching for the boys. Here are some pictures from Operation Brother’s Keeper in which IDF soldiers are working tirelessly to #BringBackOurBoys.
