RAMALLAH: Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas called on Israel to punish the killers of a Palestinian youth.

“Those who set the child on fire are known,” Abbas said in statements carried by the WAFA news agency.

“He has been kidnapped by settlers who set him ablaze and killed him,” he said

The discovery of the teen’s body in a Jerusalem forest on Wednesday raised suspicions that a missing Palestinian youth had been killed by Israelis avenging the deaths of three abducted Jewish teens.
