BROOKLYN - Family and friends of one of the three Israeli teens found dead in the West Bank Monday are mourning in Brooklyn.

Naftali Fraenkel, 16, had dual Israeli-American citizenship since his grandparents had moved to Israel from Flatbush in 1956.

Fraenkel, Eyal Yifrah, 19, and Gilad Shaar, 16, disappeared on June 12 while hitchhiking from the Jewish seminaries where they were studying. 

Since the teens’ bodies were found, Israeli forces have destroyed the homes of two suspects.

Israel’s prime minister has blamed Hamas for the deaths, but the group has denied any involvement.
