STORYLINE:

Clean-up workers started to clear debris from the Shuafat neighborhood of East Jerusalem on Monday morning, following a wave of violent Palestinian protests there over the weekend.

The violence came after the death last week of Mohammed Abu Khdeir, a 16-year-old Palestinian from east Jerusalem, who was abducted near his home.

His charred remains were found on Wednesday morning in a Jerusalem forest.

Preliminary autopsy results found he had been burned to death.

Israel arrested six Jewish suspects Sunday in the slaying, and Israeli leaders appealed for calm amid signs the death was revenge for the recent killings of the three Israeli teenagers.

Meanwhile rockets from Gaza continued to be fired against Southern Israeli communities on Monday morning, hours after Israel carried out airstrikes on the Gaza Strip in the early hours of Monday.

Israel said it carried out airstrikes on at least "14 terror sites" including "concealed rocket launchers" in Gaza overnight in retaliation to a recent spike in attacks from Gaza.

Hamas said seven of its men were killed by an Israeli airstrike on a tunnel used by the militants and vowed revenge.

Two militants from a different group were also killed in a separate strike. The men were involved in rocket attacks on southern Israeli communities, the Israeli military said.

About a dozen rockets were fired at Israel from Gaza overnight the military said. One injured a soldier.
