RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- President Mahmoud Abbas on Wednesday demanded that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu condemn the killing of a Palestinian teenager earlier the same day, Wafa reported.

Abbas said Netanyahu must denounce the murder of 16-year-old Muhammad Hussein Abu Khdeir, who police say was kidnapped from East Jerusalem and found dead in a nearby forest hours later, the official Palestinian Authority news site said.

Netanyahu should condemn the killing just as he condemned the recent kidnapping and killing of three Israeli teens, Abbas was quoted as saying.

He demanded that Israel "take real measures" to stop all revenge attacks.

Presidential spokesman Nabil Abu Rdeineh said Israel was responsible for the death of Abu Khdeir, and he demanded that the perpetrators be held accountable.

Early Wednesday, Abu Khdeir was kidnapped from the Shufat neighborhood and later found dead in a forest in a possible act of revenge for three Israeli teens who were kidnapped and killed in the West Bank.

The teens' bodies were found Monday, sparking calls for revenge.

Israeli police have not commented on whether or not the two incidents are connected.

Netanyahu in an un-statesman-like matter talked about "revenge" in his speech. Here's his revenge. Netanyahu, Bennett and the rest of his goons should be investigated for incitement by an international panel of experts.

Abbas shouldn't use the word revenge. it is a policy by the occupation state of Israel and its settlers. when you say revenge, you are giving an excuse in a way or another to the killers. however, the palestinian people no longer care about the official discourse. this discourse harms the palestinians everywhere.
