JERUSALEM (AP) — Hundreds of Palestinians hurled stones at Israeli police who responded with tear gas in clashes that erupted Wednesday following reports that an Arab teen was kidnapped and a body found in a Jerusalem forest.

Police have not determined whether the reported incidents are related or what motive may have been behind them. But Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu urged authorities to swiftly investigate the “reprehensible murder” and called on all sides “not to take the law into their own hands.”

  1. I see that UN has come out to condemn the attack – where were they for Eyal, Gilad and Naphtali?

  2. The red line was crossed with those appalling murders.

    The IDF is sure to deliver calculated, severe, and deadly retribution.

    It is a very sad and unfortunate state of affairs.
