Tension is high on the streets of East Jerusalem following the discovery of a Palestinian teenager's dead body, which occurred shortly after three Israeli teens believed to have been abducted were buried. The events have precipitated numerous clashes in the area, as documented in this BBC News report by Christian Fraser earlier today. Fraser's report outlines the confrontation occurring between Palestinian youths and Israeli police after the discovery.
We do not intend to make light of the grave situation and certainly hope for an immediate calm, but as with many things, the conflict has a Buffalo connection.
Beginning around the 1-minute, 30-second mark of the report, an individual wearing an old Marshawn Lynch No.23 Bills jersey can be spotted in the background. The fact it is a Lynch jersey is confirmed at the tail end of the video when the nameplate is visible.
We had previously read a New York Times report about Bills Super Bowl champion T-shirts and gear going to a relief organization that passes it along to developing nations.
