Ban Calls for Inquiry Into Palestinian Clashes

Ban Ki-moon has urged Israel to investigate recent clashes in Beit-ul-Moqaddas and the West Bank, while Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas called for calm after weeks of heightened unrest with Israel.
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said a "prompt and transparent" probe into recent clashes would serve to determine "whether the use of force was proportional." More clashes erupted Tuesday, including in Bethlehem following the funeral of the teenage boy, DW reported. Israel's military has killed four people in the clashes, including the 13-year-old who was mourned on Tuesday. Last week, four Israelis died in shooting and stabbing attacks in Beit-ul-Moqaddas and the West Bank.Ban worried about fighting "spiraling out of control." He also criticized Israel's demolition of homes belonging to the families of two dead alleged Palestinian attackers. The UN chief called for "urgent action" to curb the violence, including through security cooperation.
