JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli officials are considering how to respond to the discovery Monday of the bodies of three missing Israeli teenagers in the West Bank. 

Their bodies were found near a village not far from the spot where they were abducted just over two weeks ago. 

The three -- including a 16-year-old with dual Israeli-American citizenship -- had been hitchhiking home near the West Bank city of Hebron. 

The abductions led to Israel's largest ground operation in the West Bank in nearly a decade, and raised fears of renewed fighting with Hamas.
