EAST JERUSALEM (CBS) - Violent clashes broke out between Israeli police and Palestinian residents near Jerusalem following reports that a young Palestinian had been kidnapped and killed overnight by Israelis in an apparent retribution attack
Hours earlier, Israeli mourners bid farewell to the three teenagers, their bodies shrouded in flags.
Among the mourners, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Police released a recording of the 911 call made by one of the teens at the moment they were kidnapped. "We're being kidnapped," Gilad Sha'ar tells the officer. Then a kidnapper yells, "keep your head down," before the line goes dead.
Originally fearing it to be a hoax, Israeli forces initially delayed their search for the boys for several hours.
Two weeks later, they found them dead beneath a pile of rocks in a field near Hebron.
Israel blames the terrorist group Hamas for the kidnappings and killings, and has cracked down hard on the organization. In the ongoing security operation more than 400 Palestinians have been arrested and at least six killed - including Palestinian children.
Netanyahu urged police to move quickly to find out who is behind the latest killing. He called on all sides "not to take the law into their own hands."
