Murder of Palestinian Youth Causes Ruckus

share on:

The abduction and suspected revenge killing of a Palestinian youth caused a lot of ruckus between Palestinian protesters and Israeli security forces in East Jerusalem.

The incident which is just days after three kidnapped Israeli teenagers were found dead in the occupied West Bank has raised spectres of wider violence to come.

Although Israeli police said late on Wednesday that, “they had yet to confirm the circumstances of 16-year-old Mohammad Abu Khieder’s disappearance or identify a badly burned body found in a forest outside Jerusalem, which Israeli news media described as “a murder by Jews in a “nationalistic crime””, it set off fierce riots in the ordinarily quiet and relatively well-to-do East Jerusalem neighbourhood where he lived, threatening to ignite broader unrest and underlining deep fissures in Israeli society.
