Israel arrests Jewish suspects in connection with murder of Arab teen

( Israel on Sunday arrested six Jewish suspects in connection with the recent murder of Arab teen Mohammad Abu Khudair in Jerusalem, the Shin Bet security agency said.

“We will not allow extremists, it doesn’t matter from which side, to inflame the region and cause bloodshed,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a statement. “Murder is murder, incitement is incitement, and we will respond aggressively to both.”

The Shin Bet declined further comment, citing a gag order.
