Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu reiterated on Sunday afternoon that Hamas members were the perpetrators of the kidnapping of three Israeli teenagers in the West Bank, despite the terror organization's denial of responsibility for the abduction.
Earlier on Sunday, Palestinian media cited a Hamas official denying the group's involvement in the kidnapping, calling accusations "stupid" that Netanyahu made against the group during a weekly cabinet meeting.
"Hamas denials do not change this fact," Netanyahu said in a statement responding to the Islamist group's denial of his charges.
