Israel\’s military says it has arrested around 80 Palestinians in the West Bank, including members of the militant group Hamas, as part of efforts to locate three teenagers believed abducted in the territory while hitch-hiking.

Officials say the Israeli teens, including one who also holds a U.S. passport, are believed to have been kidnapped Thursday in the area.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says he holds the Palestinian Authority responsible for the young men\’s disappearances.  He says the teens were "kidnapped by a terror group."
The Palestinians say the teens disappeared in an area controlled by Israel.  Palestinian officials also say they are working in coordination with Israel in the search for the missing teens.
