JERUSLEM, May 21, 2014 – (WAFA) – The EU missions in Jerusalem and Ramallah, in a statement Wednesday, expressed concern over the death of two youths on 15 May near Ofer prison in the West Bank, in an incident involving recourse by Israeli forces to lethal force.

“It is important that any such incidents are investigated thoroughly,” stressed the statement.

We reiterate the need for security forces, whether Israeli or Palestinian, to refrain from the use of lethal force, except in cases where there is a real and imminent threat to life, the statement concluded.
