(Israel Hayom/Exclusive to JNS.org) A petition by the ambassadors of Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Iran asking the U.N. Security Council to condemn Israel over its recent operation in Judea and Samaria to find the kidnapped boys was denied Thursday.

Israeli Ambassador to the U.N. Ron Prosor slammed the Arab countries for failing to denounce the abduction of Israeli teens Gilad Shaar, Eyal Yifrach, and Naftali Frenkel.

“Instead of denouncing the boys’ abduction, the Arab states have the gall to stand before the international community and criticize Israel,” Prosor said.
