Any Israeli attack will open 'the gates of hell', warns Hamas
The Islamist movement Hamas warned.Any Israeli action to punish Hamas for the alleged murder of three teenagers whose bodies were found yesterday would open "the gates of hell,"
The warning came shortly after Israel confirmed finding the bodies of the three students who disappeared while hitchhiking in the southern West Bank on June 12th.
The bodies were found in a field near Halhul some 10 minutes from the roadside spot where they were last seen, media reports said.
Israel has repeatedly accused Hamas of kidnapping the teens, two of whom were minors, and launched a major crackdown on the movement's West Bank infrastructure.
