On June 12, 2014, three Israeli teenagers were abducted in the West Bank:. The then prime minister Netanyahu blamed Hamas saying "Hamas must pay a high price" without having carried out any investigation.
He claimed to have "unequivocal proof" that Hamas was involved and that the abduction was linked to Palestinian reconciliation, Netanyahu never showed any proof.
The armed belligerent military side of the Israelis claimed that two Palestinian men were suspected of having kidnapped the teenagers, and that they were known members of Hamas. No evidence of Hamas involvement has ever been offered.
The ex-Shin Bet chief Yuval Diskin doubted Hamas had any involvement.
But, is the case really the roots of this war? No. the roots lay in the peace process that started in January 2013. We even believe that the pulonium poisoning and death of Yasser Arafat belongs to this timeline.
