  1. Tensions Mount in Wake of Teen Murders

    The Arab-Israeli conflict boiled over this week in the wake of the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teens, followed by the reported reprisal killing of a Palestinian youth. Hamas and Israeli authorities have signaled a willingness to reciprocate should the other side hold fire, but the Israeli army has mobilized troops and says it’s ready to protect Israel’s citizens against any threat. On Sunday, police arrested six people believed to be connected with the murder of the Palestinian teenager.
