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.
