EMMA ALBERICI, PRESENTER: The Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has told the Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas that he expects his help to find three Israeli teenagers who've gone missing in the West Bank.

The Israeli military is going door-to-door to find the schoolboys who disappeared last week.

More than a hundred Palestinians have been arrested during the operation.

In a statement, Mahmoud Abbas condemned the kidnapping, but also criticised Israel's killing of a Palestinian man during the search.

The Israeli Prime Minister says Palestinian leaders must help find the teenagers.

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU, ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER: The PA cannot absolve itself of its responsibility. You'll remember that Israel warned the international community about the dangers of endorsing the Fatah-Hamas unity pact.

EMMA ALBERICI: Hamas is yet to comment on its alleged involvement.
