United States Ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, said in a post on social media on Wednesday that those wondering why no peace can be achieved between Israelis and Palestinians should look no further than Tuesday night's murder of Rabbi Raziel Shevach and the Palestinian reaction to it, The Jerusalem Post reported. Shevah lived in the nearby Gilad Farm outpost.

16-year-old Amir Abd el Hamid was shot in the chest by Israeli security forces near the border fence east of Al-Bureij camp in central Gaza, following protests against US President Donald Trump's controversial recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
