The US Secretary of State John Kerry made a statement on Monday night after the discovery of the three missing teens' bodies in the West Bank.

"The news of the murder of these three Israeli teenagers -- Naftali Fraenkel, Gilad Shaar and Eyal Yifrach -- is simply devastating. We all had so much hope that this story would not end this way," Kerry said.

Kerry continued adding, "As a father, there are no words to express such a horrific loss that shakes all people of conscience. We pray for these three boys and their families, and together we grieve with all the people of Israel. Knowing that Naftali was also an American citizen makes this an especially heavy blow not just to Israel, but to the United States."
