The search for the teens has become a national obsession, setting off a frantic manhunt and large crackdown on the Hamas militant group.

Meanwhile, Israel's prime minister says the Hamas militant group will pay a heavy price for the deaths of three Israeli teenagers who were kidnapped in the West Bank.

Israel has accused Hamas of being behind the abductions.
 
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says in a statement "Hamas is responsible, and Hamas will pay." He adds the teenagers "were kidnapped and murdered in cold blood by wild beasts."
 
Netanyahu was meeting with his Security Cabinet to discuss a response.   (AP)
