US National Security Advisor Susan Rice said late Wednesday that President Obama and the United States were concerned for the three Israeli teenager who were abducted about two weeks ago in Gush Etzion.

"Tonight, all of our hearts are hurting for the 3 Israeli students who were kidnapped in the West Bank, one of whom is also an American," she said on Twitter. "We pray for their safe return & strength for the families in this agonizing vigil."

She said cooperation between Israel and the Palestinians was "critical" to searches for the boys and to prevent further destabilizing in the West Bank.
