On Tuesday Egypt's foreign ministry asked Israel to stop its collective punishment of the Palestinian people, after it bombed dozens of sites in the Gaza trip a day after the bodies of three missing Israeli teenagers were found.

"Egypt is following the situation closely in hope for containing the repercussions of the incident and stopping it from being out of control," said a Foreign Ministry statement published through the state news agency MENA.

The teenagers were missing since June 12th and were found dead on the occupied West Bank. 

Israel blamed Hamas for the kidnapping and killing of the teens. 

Egypt asked the Israeli forces to pull back from Hamas and allow the Palestinian authorities to take on its responsibility in tracking the culprits.
