Israel vows revenge on Hamas for teenagers deaths

Anger and sadness in Israel today after three missing teenagers were found dead.
Israel now vowing revenge against Hamas, the Palestinian militant group it says is behind the murder of the teens - including a 16 year-old, who was also an American citizen.
   
Hamas has denied having anything to do with their deaths, but is paying a steep price with more than 200 of its members now arrested...

As the crackdown grew, so did the waves of rockets launched by militants in the gaza strip into Israel.
   
Israel is responding with precision airstrikes which have killed two people so far..
It's raising the possibility this will descend into  all-out war.

Lt. Col. Peter Lerner SOT - We're not striving for that and absolutely don't want to go into any substantial conflict with Hamas in Gaza ultimately
what we're out to do is protect Israeli lives.
   
But Israel's government is very much divided on the path forward, many demanding a much harsher response for the murder of the three teens who are being laid to rest together today.
