Israel was reinforcing troops in the occupied West Bank Saturday to step up searches for three Israeli teenagers believed to have been abducted by Palestinian militants, a military source said.Abbas drew an angry response from Hamas, however, by helping Israel's dragnet Saturday.To escalate the searches, Israel was bringing a "significant" number of fresh forces to the Hebron area, including a paratrooper brigade, the military source said.A Palestinian security source said Abbas's forces were helping Israel in the search."Security coordination between (Prime Minister Rami) Hamdallah's and Abbas's security services and the enemy to locate the heroes of the Hebron operation and arrest them is a stigma," said Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum.Palestinian militants have said in the past that they want to kidnap Israelis to win concessions from the Israeli government.
