Clashes continued in Jerusalem on Thursday, amid calls for revenge by Israelis and Palestinians following the deaths of the four teens.
But the families who have lost their sons have called for an end to the violence. The Fraenkel family released a statement on Wednesday saying "revenge is unjustified."
In Shuafat, the Abu Khubair family is still waiting for their son's body to be released so that they can bury him. On Wednesday, they spoke out against kidnapping — "whether Jew or Arab."
Israeli and Palestinian officials have also urged calm, saying that neither side wants to see an escalation in violence, but few appeared to answer the call for quiet.
