US: Indications Hamas involved in Israelis' kidnapping

June 15, 2014 8:45 P.M. (Updated: June 16, 2014 3:52 P.M.)
WASHINGTON (AFP) -- US Secretary of State John Kerry condemned on Sunday the kidnapping of three Israeli teenagers from the West Bank, and said many indications pointed to the involvement of Hamas.

"We are still seeking details on the parties responsible for this despicable terrorist act, although many indications point to Hamas' involvement," he said.

"As we gather this information, we reiterate our position that Hamas is a terrorist organization known for its attacks on innocent civilians and which has used kidnapping in the past."

Hamas denied any involvement in the disappearance of the teens from near the Jewish-only settlement of Gush Etzion, calling Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's claims the Islamist group perpetrated the attack "stupid."

The youths, aged 16-19, disappeared late Thursday.
