Blair condemns killing of Palestinian teen: 'Fanatics must be sidelined'
Quartet Representative Tony Blair condemned the Wednesday killing of the Palestinian teenager Mohammad Abu Khdeir saying, "There is no possible justification for such an horrendous act - and the perpetrators must be found swiftly and brought to justice. Extremists must not be allowed to exploit the events of the last weeks to spark a further escalation in violence."


"The fanatics must be sidelined," Blair stressed. "The Israeli and Palestinian leaders must continue their pursuit for a negotiated settlement that will bring about peace and security for their citizens."
