Gaza, Al Ray - Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) held the Israeli government responsible for the settlers kidnapping and killing of a Palestinian teen from East Jerusalem town of Shuafat.
Department of International Relations at the PLO said Wednesday in a press statement that “The Israeli government is fully responsible for the murder of Mohammed Khudair, 16, with cold blood,”
The statement demanded in a statement the democratic governments and UN bodies to take their legal and moral responsibilities to stop the Israeli crimes against the Palestinians, and to force ‘Israel’ to conform with the international law.
The PLO confirmed that the Israeli incitement coming from high-profile officials opened up the way to the escalating acts of terror by fanatic settlers against the Palestinian people.
It pointed to the settlers’ burning of mosques and churches, and drawing of racist graffitti on Palestinian homes’ that call for revenge and price-paying.
A Palestinian teenager from occupied East Jerusalem was kidnapped and killed early Wednesday in a suspected act of revenge for the killing of three Israeli youths, Israeli army radio reported.
The murder sparked a wave of clashes in East Jerusalem where around 200 angry young Palestinians threw stones at police, who responded with sound bombs and rubber bullets, an AFP correspondent and police said.
