Knesset Speaker Yuli-Yoel Edelstein told Monday`s plenary session, ”I am resuming this meeting with great sorrow because we received an official announcement that the episode involving the kidnapped teenagers ended badly. In light of this, the MKs have withdrawn all the issues on the agenda. The hearts of all of us are with the families.”

Most of the Knesset`s committees have cancelled their meetings scheduled for Tuesday.
