WASHINGTON: US Secretary of State John Kerry condemned on Sunday the kidnapping of three Israeli teenagers, 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."
