Palestinian families fear for the lives of three youths who have been missing for more than a week. Concerns for the three grew after their mobile telephones and the identity cards of two of the youths were found near the West Bank City of Ramallah last Friday (1 April), The Times Of Israel reported.

The families of missing Basel Mahmoud Ala'raj of al-Walaja, near Jerusalem; Mohammed Abdullah Harb of Jenin; and Haytham Sayaj of Hebron say they have received no word of their whereabouts.

Palestinian security forces said they were attempting to find the three, and urged the public not to spread rumours about their fate.
