A Palestinian child from Beit Furik town in Nablus survived certain death on Wednesday after Jewish settlers kidnapped and tortured him inside their settlement.

Local sources told reporters that eight-year-old Bashar Ghazal was found in the illegal Itamar settlement, handcuffed and injured as a result of his exposure to severe torture at the hands of extremist settlers.

The sources added that the Israeli occupation army handed over the boy to the Palestinian Authority liaison office on Wednesday night, confirming that the settlers brutally tortured the child and burned his skin with molten plastic.

The boy, who is mute, was reported missing by his family in the morning after his father died.

This case is by no means peculiar. In July 2014, a group of settlers kidnapped and burnt alive a 16-year-old Palestinian boy, Muhammad Abu Khdeir, in East Jerusalem.
