The US is asking Israel for a full investigation into the death of a young American

The United States is calling on Israel for a full and transparent investigation into the death of an American teenager in Ramallah, West Bankin the full escalation of Israeli operations following the October 7 Hamas attack.

“I am 17 years old, just a teenager. We call on Israel to conduct a transparent, complete and thorough investigation into his murder. And, of course, we have every expectation that those responsible will be held accountable,” the communications coordinator for the White House National Security Council, John Kirby, said at a press conference.

The young man, identified as Tawfic Abdel Jabbar, died last Friday due to gunfire by Israeli forcesaccording to Palestinian sources.

On the same day, Kirby noted that the United States is “seriously concerned” by what happened and that, although he does not have enough context, he “constantly contacts his counterparts in the region to get more information.”

On Monday presidential spokesmanJoe Biden, went on to demand an investigation.

Continued by the American president on Friday a telephone conversation with the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, in which he reiterated that the establishment of two states is the only solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

“They had a good conversation, including about the importance of a two-state solution. That doesn’t mean they agree on everything. That’s why leadership is important to move forward,” Kirby emphasized Monday, admitting that achieving that end “is very difficult and requires commitment and negotiation.”
