Two Israeli teens given long prison terms for murder of Palestinian teen

JERUSALEM – A Jerusalem court handed out lengthy prison sentences Thursday to two Israeli youths found guilty of kidnapping and brutally murdering a Palestinian teenager in a revenge attack during the summer of 2014.

The Israeli teens, both minors, were not identified. One was sentenced to life in prison and the other to a 21-year term for their roles in abducting Mohammed Abu Khdeir, 16, from outside his family home in East Jerusalem and burning him alive in a nearby forest.
