Israeli troops arrested some 30 Palestinians in the West Bank overnight as they ramped up a search for three teenagers believed kidnapped by Hamas, the army said on Thursday.The arrests raised the number of Palestinians detained since the youths went missing a week ago to 280, around three-quarters of them members of the Islamist Hamas movement, a statement said. Israel accuses Hamas of being behind the abductions and has launched a far-reaching military operation aimed at finding the teenagers and also crushing the movement's infrastructure in the West Bank.At a meeting with the families of the missing youths, President Shimon Peres said Israel should pursue its crackdown on Hamas.
