The mother of a teen kidnapped and killed in June spoke with Sean Hannity this week about the loss of her son.

Rachel Fraenkel’s son, Naftali Fraenkel, was among the three Israeli teens kidnapped in June. They were found dead 18 days later, and it is alleged that Hamas is responsible.

“Life here is cherished, and the children are the most important thing that we have,” Rachel said. She told Hannity that her family was taken care of in every way by the community following her son’s kidnapping, explaining that there is “so much solidarity in Israel.”

Rachel explained that the intense military effort to find the three teens led to the discovery of the Hamas tunnels.

“We’ve suffered a terrible tragedy and that’s the personal issue, but on a national level, it might have saved dozens of lives,” she said.
