Israel PM: 3 missing teens taken by terror group

By WKTV News

JERUSALEM (AP) - Israel's prime minister has said that the three teens missing from the West Bank were taken by a terror group.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made the comments Saturday night, two days after the teens went missing.
Netanyahu said: "''Our children were kidnapped by a terror group, (there is) no doubt about that."
Netanyahu said there was an "intensive operation" underway to prevent them from being taken to the Gaza Strip or elsewhere.

The Israeli military has identified the teens as 16-year-olds Naftali Frenkel and Gilad Shaar and 19-year-old Eyal Yifrach. Israeli television station Channel 10 named Frenkel as the U.S. citizen that officials earlier mentioned.
