Kerry offers condolences to Palestinians over 'sickening' murder of teen
US Secretary of State John Kerry condemned Wednesday's murder of Palestinian teenager Muhammad Hussein Abu Khdeir calling the act "sickening" and saying, "There are no words to convey adequately our condolences to the Palestinian people.


"Those who undertake acts of vengeance only destabilize an already explosive and emotional situation. The world has too often learned the hard way that violence only leads to more violence and at this tense and dangerous moment, all parites must to everything in their power to protect the innocent and act with reasonableness and restraint, not recrimination and retribution."
