Israeli army says three kidnapped teenagers found dead

JERUSALEM — The Israeli army confirmed Monday evening that search teams found the bodies of three kidnapped Israeli teenagers, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed that the Islamist militant group accused of the abductions would pay a heavy price.

Speaking at the start of a meeting of his security cabinet following the grisly discovery, Netanyahu said, “Hamas is responsible, and Hamas will pay.” He said the three “were kidnapped and murdered in cold blood by wild beasts.” The teenagers were abducted June 12 as they made their way home from their religious school in the Israeli-occupied West Bank.

While few details were released on the exact fate of the three teens, security officials said the bodies of Naftali Fraenkel and Gilad Shaar, both 16, and Eyal Yifrach, 19, were found in an open area close to Hebron, in the West Bank, near the location where the teens disappeared. Fraenkel was a dual U.S.-Israeli citizen.

Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, an Israeli army spokesman, said the bodies were discovered around 5 p.m. Monday afternoon by civilian volunteer searchers near the village of Halhul just north of Hebron.
