President Isaac Herzog speaks with Hussam Fero, the father of 18-year-old Tiran Fero whose body is being held by Palestinian terrorists in the West Bank city of Jenin.

Fero’s family says that after he was critically injured in a car crash, Palestinian gunmen stormed the Jenin hospital, disconnected him from life support and snatched his body, making demands of Israel in exchange for it.

“The entire Israeli public is with you, praying that this tragedy passes as quickly as possible,” Herzog tells Hussam Fero, adding that he is following the developments.

A statement from Herzog’s office says Fero thanked the president for the conversation.
