A family in New York named their newborn triplets after slain teenagers Eyal Yifrach, Gil-ad Shaar and Naftali Fraenkel, the Jewish Press reported Thursday.
The baby boys — Eyal Yosef, Gil-ad Menachem, and Naftali Haim — were reportedly named at their brit milah (circumcision) ceremony a day after the three kidnapped and murdered teenagers were laid to rest on Tuesday.
Le Monde Juif [in French] carried what it says is a picture of the babies and their parents.
The three teens’ bodies were discovered Monday partially buried near Hebron after an 18-day expansive search in the West Bank, which saw the arrests of over 400 Palestinians, most of them Hamas men.
They were abducted on June 12 while hitchhiking home in the Etzion Bloc in the West Bank.
Their joint funeral were attended by some 150,000 people Tuesday.
Israel was on a manhunt for two Hamas members it says are prime suspects in their brutal murder.
