LOS ANGELES, CA – Los Angeles City Councilmember Bob Blumenfield today made the following statement following the discovery of the bodies of Naftali Fraenkel, Gilad Shaar, and Eyal Yifrach. Fraenkel, Shaar and Yifrach had been missing since being kidnapped by Hamas terrorists on June 12.
“Our hearts are heavy with the news that after weeks of searching, the bodies of Naftali, Gilad and Eyal have been discovered, and their souls have passed from our world.
Angelenos of all faiths and creeds join with their families and the people of the State of Israel in mourning these three young men whose lives were senselessly lost, and in condemning the murderous terrorists still at large. We pray they are brought to justice.”
