Greens mourn tragic death of three Israeli teenagers

The Green Party of Canada denounces the horrific killing of three young sons of Israel. Gilad Shaar, 16, Eyal Yifrach, 19 and Naftali Fraenkel, 16 were kidnapped while walking home from school on June 12. The three were found dead earlier today.

“I am shocked and deeply saddened by the murder of these three innocent young men,” said Elizabeth May, Leader of the Green Party of Canada and MP for Saanich–Gulf Islands. “While the larger concerns of the search for peace in the region occupy our thoughts, these murders tear at our hearts. We must end the violence cutting down Palestinian and Israeli youth.”
