Israeli government responds to death of three kidnapped teens

The bodies of Eyal Yifrah, Gilad Shaar, and Naftali Fraenkel, three Israeli teens who were kidnapped in the West Bank, were found on Monday in the Palestinian town of Halhul. The Israeli government blames Hamas for the kidnapping and killing of the teenagers and has launched a series of airstrikes in response. Hamas has denied it was responsible. We’ll discuss the Israeli government’s response with Alex Goldman-Shayman, the Israeli Deputy Consul General to the Midwest.
