On his first official visit to Israel on Wednesday, US Treasury Secretary Jack Lew "strongly condemned" the kidnapping of three Israelis last week as "despicable" and gave full-throated support for Israeli efforts to return them.

"We call for the immediate release of the boys, and we continue to offer our full support to Israel in its efforts to locate them," Lew said in a press conference alongside Finance Minister Yair Lapid.
