Tension escalates as Palestinians prepare to bury murdered teenager

Tension in the Middle-East remains high following the abduction and murder on Wednesday of a Palestinian teenager.

East Jerusalem, especially, has seen fierce clashes.

Relatives say the 17-year-old was forced inside a car which then sped off.

“They filmed them on camera, they have a clear picture of when they kidnapped him in front of his father’s store, and he is walking to the mosque, it’s close to the house,” one local man said.

Police continue to hold on to the body of the young Palestinian who it is feared was murdered in revenge for the recent killings and abduction of three Israeli teenagers.

Unconfirmed reports say Israeli authorities are planning to release the Palestinian teenager’s body this evening as relatives prepare for his funeral.

Since Wednesday, dozens of people are reported to have been injured in clashes with fears of further trouble.
