Kerry Urges Netanyahu and Abbas to Exercise Restraint

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry was in China on Wednesday but that did not stop him from engaging with Mideast leaders and others in a bid to halt escalating Israeli-Palestinian Arab violence, according to AFP.

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said that Kerry had asked both Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas to exercise restraint.
