This summer, three Jewish settlers confessed to abducting and murdering Mohamed Abu Khdeer, a 16-year-old Palestinian boy, in Israel-occupied East Jerusalem.
Tension has mounted in Jerusalem – and in the rest of the occupied West Bank – ever since the kidnap and murder of three Israeli settlers this summer and the subsequent abduction and murder of Abu Khdeer.
Both incidents preceded a devastating Israeli military onslaught on the Gaza Strip in July and August that left over 2,160 Palestinians dead – the vast majority of them civilians – and some 11,000 injured.
The rising tensions in Jerusalem even further escalated since late October, when Israel briefly closed occupied East Jerusalem's flashpoint Al-Aqsa Mosque compound after an extremist rabbi was shot and injured by a Palestinian man in West Jerusalem.
