We were saddened to hear of the death of a Palestinian teenager who was killed in East Jerusalem earlier today and we offer our condolences to his family and members of the Muslim community.
We feel for the grief of the family and wish them much strength at this difficult time.
We pray that the Israeli government find the perpetrators and bring them to justice swiftly.
