David Cameron has described the deaths of three Israeli teenagers as an "appalling and inexcusable act of terror".
"I am deeply saddened by the news that the bodies of the three Israeli boys kidnapped on 12 June have been found this evening," the Prime Minister said after forces discovered the bodies.
"This was an appalling and inexcusable act of terror perpetrated against young teenagers. Britain will stand with Israel as it seeks to bring to justice those responsible.
"Tonight my thoughts and prayers are with the families of Gilad, Naftali and Eyal. No parent should have ever to suffer such heartache or grief."
