Israel said Sunday Hamas militants had abducted three Israeli teenagers in the occupied West Bank, warning of "serious consequences" as it pressed on with a search and detained dozens of Palestinians.U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry condemned the kidnapping, and said many indications pointed to the involvement of Hamas. Palestinian officials put the number of people taken into Israeli custody so far at more than 100 .These included at least seven Hamas members of the Palestinian Parliament and several prisoners recently released by Israel, the Palestinian officials said. Gilad Erdan, a minister in Netanyahu's Security Cabinet, told Israel's Channel 2 television that Abbas' security forces were "willingly" helping in the search. Palestinian authorities confirmed the cooperation, drawing Hamas censure.
