Israeli security forces block an entrance to the village of Halhul, near the West Bank town of Hebron, after the bodies of three Israeli teenagers were found.

The bodies of three Israeli teenagers missing since June 12 were found Monday close to the West Bank city of Hebron. Israel suspects two members of Hamas, but they remain at-large in spite of the arrest of over 400 Palestinians. Hamas has denied involvement in the abduction and killing, which has heightened tensions between Israel and a new Palestinian unity government, which is backed by Hamas.

Host: Michael Krasny
