The US State Department Spokeswoman, Marie Harf, addressed the murder of the three Israeli teens in the West Bank saying that, "Investigations into the kidnap and murder point to Hamas involvement in this case, but at this stage we haven't decided that Hamas is responsible."
White House spokesperson Josh Earnest also spoke about the tragedy. "Israel and the Palesinian Authority are cooperating in investigations. The fact is that Hamas and Palestinian leaders praised the abduction and the response of the Israeli government is understandable, but the two sides must prevent any escalation in the situation."
