Finance Minister Yair Lapid said Tuesday his heart was broken when he heard the bodies of the three slain Israeli teens had been found.
"I want to send a warm embrace to the families and promise them that we will continue hunting those responsible for this crime," he said.
"Hamas is responsible and Hamas will pay a heavy price. We will continue acting determinedly until we find these murderers. This is our responsibility against anyone who tries to harm the safety of our children," Lapid added. (Moran Azulay)
