The killers of three Israeli teenagers abducted and shot dead in the occupied West Bank can be heard celebrating after a burst of gunfire in the full version of the emergency call made by one of the boys to police.

In the chilling audio tape one of the kidnappers is heard crying out "we got three" in Arabic. The remark is followed shortly by cheers and whoops.

The 2.09 minutes recording was published by Ynet newspaper a day after a shorter version was leaked online.

The call was made by 16-year-old Gilad Shaar at 10:25 pm, shortly after he was abducted along with two friends Naftali Frenkel, 16, and Eyal Yifrach, 19, while hitchhiking from the Jewish settlement of Gush Etzion.

In the first part of the call, Shaar is heard saying "I have been kidnapped", followed by screams.

The abductors can be heard yelling at the teens to put heads down before loud noises -- believed to be gun shots -- ring out. A noise, possibly of someone in the car groaning, follows.

The operator tries to talk with the caller but receives no answer.

In the second part a different operator, a policewoman, is heard taking over the call and asking the boy where he is.

The Israeli military discovered the teenagers' bodies in a field near the village of Halhul, north of Hebron, not far from where they disappeared on June 12.

The kidnappers allegedly shot them dead in the back seat of the car upon realising they were trying to alert the authorities.

The call was considered a prank by the police, delaying the start of the search by several hours.

After the call ended, officers tried to call back the number eight more times but received three busy signals and reached voicemail five times. Information about the call was not passed on to superiors.

Four senior police officers have been dismissed after a preliminary investigation concluded that a slew of professional missteps were made.

The murders and the government's large military response have escalated tensions between Israelis and Palestinians.

A Palestinian teen was kidnapped and killed in an apparent revenge attack.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has blamed Hamas for the three teenagers' death.

Israeli domestic security agency Shin Bet named the two principal suspects as Marwan Kawasmeh and Amer Abu Eisheh, two extremists from the Hebron area.
