Lapid calls murder of Palestinian teen 'shameful'


Finance Minister Yair Lapid slammed the murder of Palestinian teen Mohammed Abu Khdeir, saying "we must all feel shame at the new recent events." Sunday six extremist Jews were arrested for their role in the murder.


"Israel cannot allow itself to stay quiet in face of the murder of a young innocent Arab youth at the hands of Jewish murders.


"We cannot differentiate between blood and blood. Radicals' attempts to take the law into their own hands harms the social fabric of Israeli society, our international interests and our attempts to fight terror."
