The recent discovery of the bodies of three missing teens in Israel has triggered outrage against Hamas, the Palestinian terrorist group. Hamas is believed to be responsible by Israeli authorities for kidnapping and then murdering the teens.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanhayu expressed anger against Hamas for the slayings:
They were kidnapped and murdered in cold blood by beasts.
Hamas is responsible and Hamas will pay.
Netanyahu also expressed deep remorse for the three murdered Israeli students:
On behalf of the people of Israel, I wish to tell their dear families … our hearts are bleeding, the entire nation is weeping with you.
The Israeli ambulance was stoned by Palestinian Arabs after it picked up the corpses of the three teens.
Now Netanyahu’s security cabinet has convened after nightfall to discuss the situation. They are weighing the options of going after Hamas, the group believed to be responsible by Israel.
A retired colonel, Shaul Shay, said:
If the goal is to create large-scale damage to the infrastructure in Gaza, it can be done from the air.
He also said:
But if the goal is to change the strategic environment, you need boots on the ground.
