Hundreds of Israeli Arabs took to the streets in the capital on Wednesday to riot after a 17-year-old boy from the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat was found brutally murdered in the Jerusalem Forest.

Officers found Muhammad Abu Khdeir’s partially burned corpse shortly after residents of the upscale Arab Beit Hanina neighborhood notified police they had seen a young man being forced into a black vehicle early on Wednesday morning.

The killing took place after scores of right-wing protesters marched through part of downtown Jerusalem on Tuesday, rioting and demanding revenge for the June 12 murders of yeshiva students Gil- Ad Shaer, 16, Eyal Yifrah, 19, and Naftali Fraenkel, 16, whose funerals were held earlier that afternoon. Tuesday’s riot resulted in more than 50 arrests.
