Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed revenge against Hamas today after the bodies of three kidnapped teens were found in the West Bank.
FOX News reported:
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed revenge against Hamas after three teens kidnapped June 12 in the West Bank — including one with U.S. citizenship — were found dead Monday, just north of Hebron.
“They were kidnapped and murdered in cold blood by animals,” Haaretz quoted Netanyahu saying at a hastily arranged security cabinet meeting. “In the name of the whole of Israel, I ask to tell the dear families – to the mothers, the fathers, the grandmothers and the grandfathers, the brothers and sisters – our hearts are bleeding, the whole nation is crying with them.”
The leader’s angry words came hours after the search for Eyal Yifrach, 19; Gilad Shaar, 16; and Naftali Frenkel, also 16, who were snatched while hitchhiking, ended in the West Bank, where Hamas operates. Sources said the bodies were found in a shallow grave in an open field in the West Bank village of Halhul, just north of Hebron.
“Hamas is responsible, and Hamas will pay,” Netanyahu vowed.
President Obama called the killings of the teens a “senseless act of terror.”
Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal spoke out how proud he was of the kidnapping of the teens last week.
