Palestinian Teen Killed May Be Revenge

A 17-year-old Palestinian male was found in a forested area early Wednesday in Jerusalem, just a day after funerals for three Israeli teenagers who had been kidnapped and killed. While the motive for the death of the Palestinian boy is still unknown, it has already been called a “horrible and barbaric act” by Jerusalem’s mayor, and the country’s justice minister said there would be “zero tolerance” for the murder. Police received a call that the boy had been seen being forcefully shoved in a car by someone. Police have been deployed to Palestinian neighborhoods to keep order.
