Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu eulogized the three teens kidnapped and murdered as the boys were laid to rest in front of thousands of mourners in Modi'in on Tuesday.

Netanyahu said that the Israeli people had come to know Gil-Ad Shaer, Eyal Yifrah and Naftali Fraenkel during the two-and-half week search for them that ended in tragedy with the discovery of their bodies on Monday.

He praised the parents and families of the boys for their "inner strength" during the period when the teens were missing.

Netanyahu said that "today has spontaneously become a national day of mourning."
