Relative of slain Israeli teen condemns “revenge killing”

A relative of Naftali Frenkel, one of three Israeli teens found dead Monday after their abduction near Hebron June 12, has spoken out about the death of a Palestinian teenager that is being called a potential revenge killing. Muhammad Hussein Abu Khdeir, 16, was found dead in the Jerusalem Forest early Wednesday morning.

"If the Arab youth was murdered because of nationalistic motives then this is a horrible and horrendous act. There is no difference between [Arab] blood and [Jewish] blood. Murder is murder. There is no forgiveness or justification for any murder," said Yishai Frenkel, Frenkel’s uncle.
