Two 17-year-old Israelis have been convicted of the murder of Palestinian youth Mohammad Abu Khdair, who was abducted and burned to death in Jerusalem in 2014.

A verdict on a third defendant, a 31-year-old Israeli man, was postponed for a mental health review, according to a report by the BBC.

Mohammad Abu Khdair, age 16, was killed in apparent revenge for the murders of three Israeli teens in the West Bank.

The killings set off an escalating cycle of violence, leading to a war between Israel and militants in Gaza.
