Clashes Break Out after Palestinian Teen’s Body Found in Jerusalem

posted on July 2, 2014

At CNN, Kareem Khadder and Jethro Mullen write, “The discovery of a Palestinian teen’s body in Jerusalem early Wednesday triggered clashes between Israelis and Palestinians, further inflaming tensions that spiked this week with the discovery of the bodies of three Israeli teens.” The Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat has especially seen an increase in violence, allegedly leaving 50 Palestinians injured in clashes between Palestinian residents and Israeli security. It is unclear whether the abductions and murders of the Israeli and Palestinian teens are related.
