Israel Mourns, Buries Three Teens

At CNN, Josh Levs and Jethro Mullen report reactions to the confirmed killing of three Israeli teens after their abduction in the West Bank. At the teens’ funeral on Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, “A broad moral gulf separates us from our enemies. They sanctify death, we sanctify life. They sanctify cruelty, and we mercy and compassion. That is the secret of our strength.” Israel has increased airstrikes to Gaza, though Hamas, the militant Islamic group that controls Gaza, denies responsibility for the deaths.
