Video Shows Faces Of Those Who Killed A 16-Yr-Old Palestinian As Anti-Israel Uprising Begins

July, 06, 2014: New video footage appears to show the faces of the alleged suspects in the brutal abduction and murder of a Palestinian teenager.

A Palestinian teen’s burned body was found dumped in woodland near Jerusalem on Wednesday.

In what is being called a “revenge attack” by extremists, 16-yearold Mohammed Abu Khudair was kidnapped and brutally murdered shortly after the bodies of three missing Israeli boys were found in West Bank last week.

The video above appears to show the faces of his alleged attackers, for the first time after the news of the killing made headlines.

According to Khudair’s family, the latest video recording shows the moment of his abduction.

In fact, it appears to replicate the same moment in the CCTV footage (posted below) which was released on Thursday by Palestinian rights advocate Electronic Intifada.

The Intifada also claim Israeli police were present at the time the mobile phone footage was shot and their voices can be heard in the background.

However, they were not aware that they were being recorded.

RECOMMENDED: Is Netanyahu Capitalizing On Israeli Teens’ Deaths?

The tragic news of the death of the three Israeli teens prompted international outrage and provocative statements from the Prime Minister Netanyahu led to a rise in tension between the already at-conflict nations.

Netanyahu carried out mass arrests, night-time raids and deadly firepower, leading to Israel's largest ground operation in the Palestinian territory in nearly a decade, despite the fact that there wasn’t – and still isn’t – any “concrete evidence” that Palestinians had anything to do with the three murders.

Following Khudair’s ruthless killing, his second-cousin, 15-year-old American citizen Tareq Abu Khudair, was allegedly beaten by Israeli border police and is now being held in Israeli detention.
