JERUSALEM (AP) - Israel's prime minister says it could take time to locate three teenagers who went missing nearly four days ago and are believed to have been abducted by Palestinian militants in the West Bank.
   
Benjamin Netanyahu told reporters on Monday that the country "has to be prepared for the possibility" that the crisis could drag on.
   
The three teens disappeared last Thursday night, and Israeli security forces have been searching for them ever since.
   
Netanyahu has accused the Hamas of being behind the abductions. The militant group has denied involvement.
   
Netanyahu said he "expects" the international community to strongly condemn the abductions.
