PALESTINIAN TEEN MURDER SPARKS RIOTING

0

JERUSALEM: Violence flared in Jerusalem as angry Palestinian youths clashed with Israeli police following the kidnap and murder of a Palestinian teen in an apparent revenge attack, prompting international calls for calm. Hundreds of masked Palestinians on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila) hurled stones at Israeli riot police, who responded by firing rubber bullets, tear gas and sound bombs. Clashes continued into the night. Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu condemned the “despicable” killing of the 16-year-old Palestinian boy, whose death came after three Israeli teenagers were killed in the West Bank. Netanyahu urged both sides “not to take the law into their own hands.”
