Note: On June 12, 2014, three Israeli teens were kidnapped while hitchhiking in the West Bank. The boys' bodies were found by Israeli security forces near Hebron on June 30, 2014. They appeared to have been shot to death soon after the abduction. Two days later, a Palestinian teen was kidnapped and murdered in Jerusalem in what may have been a revenge attack, although this has yet to be confirmed. Following this murder, Palestinians took to the streets of eastern Jerusalem in violent protests.
