Israeli soldiers raid the offices of a Palestinian broadcaster
It's day six of a massive hunt for three missing teens Israel believes have been abducted in the West Bank
Israeli forces are casting their net ever wider in their hunt for the youths
(SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) OWNER OF TRANSMEDIA, A PALESTINIAN BROADCAST PROVIDER RAIDED BY ISRAELI ARMY, AMER EL JABARI, SAYING:
"I don't know the reason for this, they entered our offices all over the West Bank in Ramallah, Jerusalem, Hebron and Nablus, and we don't know why. We are a company that provides services to more than one agency and television station, foreign and Arab. This is a commercial service company only and we have no other activities."
Overnight, Israeli forces detained more than 65 Palestinians, many of them former detainees released in a prisoner swap in 2011
Israeli officials say they want to make it clear that Hamas will pay a high price for the abduction
So far the group has neither denied nor claimed responsibility for their disappearance.
