Three teens boy were abducted in a Jewish settlement in Israel last week. The Prime Minister of Israel blamed Hamas.

According to CNN, the mother of one of the three boys, one of whom is a dual Israel-American citizen, said the boys went missing while on their way home.

The prime minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, is sure that Hamas took the boys.

"Those who perpetrated the abduction of our youths were members of Hamas -- the same Hamas that Abu Mazen made a unity government with. This has severe repercussions,” Netanyahu said.

One of the boys called the police the same night, saying that they had been kidnapped. However, the search did not begin until the family reported the boys missing, the New York Times reported.

Racheli Frankel, the mother of one of the missing boys, has hopes that the boys will be returned safely and thanks security forces for the search effort.

"We feel waves and waves of prayers and support and positive energy in this direction."
