Three members of an extremist Israeli group have confessed that they were responsible for the killing of Mohammed Abu Khder, the 16-year-old Palestinian boy who was burned alive last week.
Three members of the Israeli hate gang, who were held over the abduction and killing of a Palestinian teenager last week, have confessed to the murder, police insiders claim.
"Three out of six suspects in custody have confessed to the murder and burning of Mohammed Abu Khder, and performed a re-enactment of the crime" in front of officers, the source told AFP, requesting anonymity.
Israel arrested six Jewish extremists on Sunday in connection with the killing of Abu Khder last week, in a gruesome attack that triggered days of clashes in occupied east Jerusalem and Arab Israeli towns.
The 16-year-old youth was burned alive by thugs seeking revenge for the kidnap and murder of three Israeli teenagers in the occupied West Bank last month.
The youth is said to have suffered suffered burns 'over 90% of his body' during the attack, in which he is said to have remained breathing throughout.
Israeli government officials placed the blame for the kidnapping of the three Israeli teenagers on Gaza terror group Hamas, despite Sinai-based militants Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis claiming responsibility for the attack.
