Israeli human rights group, B'Tselem, revealed harrowing details of the Palestinian teenager who was kidnapped and tortured with fire by a group of Israeli settlers in the occupied West Bank two months ago, in a report released last week.
However, a large group of Israeli settlers from the nearby Homesh Israeli settlement later arrived in cars in the area, carrying stones and sticks.
The Palestinian boys quickly fled the scene, as one of the settlers began throwing stones at them and managed to escape back to their village.
He told the rights group, "The settlers drove towards me and hit me with their car, and I fell to the ground.
As they continued to assault him, the Israeli settlers carried and hung him from a tree to "burn his feet".
According to B'Tselem, Israeli soldiers arrived shortly after in a military jeep and the settlers accused Tareq of throwing stones at them.
Israeli and Palestinian estimates indicate that there are about 650,000 settlers in the West Bank, including occupied Jerusalem, residing in 164 settlements and 116 outposts. »
