A spokesman for Israel's Prime Minster says the government is putting "maximum effort" into finding three kidnapped teenagers.

Israel has accused Hamas of kidnapping the teens, though Hamas denies this.

Mark Regev, the spokesman for PM Benjamin Netanyahu, admitted there had been some "places of violence" during the search but insisted they were "not trying to hurt anyone."

He told BBC Radio 5 live's Breakfast: "We just trying to get our boys back home.... we're very concerned about their lives."
