BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israel TV reported on Monday about alleged confessions made by one of the Israeli settlers who killed Palestinian teenager Muhammad Abu Khdeir.

Yusef Ben-David, the main suspect, said that “after three settlers were kidnapped in Hebron we decided to avenge them by kidnapping and killing a Palestinian.”

He said he brought three bottles from his house and headed toward a gas station in Hizma, a Palestinian area, filled them with kerosene and “bought an energy drink and headed to look for a Palestinian to kill.”

“We dressed normal so that we wouldn't appear as religious people,” he added.

“We saw a kid in the Shufat area, stopped the car next to him and asked him about the way to Tel Aviv. He may have suspected us but we punched him in his face and I put my hand on his mouth.”

“People started shouting Allah Akbar when they saw us. The kid started shouting more and I put my hand over his mouth to suffocate him.”

He continued to say “we then headed to the Jerusalem woods and I told my partners to suffocate him. Arabs have seven souls; I was afraid he would wake up so I punched him in the head and then I hit him in the same spot with a sharp object.”

The suspect added: “We poured the kerosene on the kid, and then I kicked him three times for the three settlers, and I set fire to his legs ... “then all his body caught fire.”

In an attempt to “justify their crime,” Ben David said that “we made a mistake and we regret it; we Jews are known for mercy and compassion.”

The lawyer of the suspects said they had “psychological issues; they are stunned and they have hearts.”

The Israeli police had earlier arrested six suspects for the crime. Three were released and three are still in detention.

Throughout all of this he still claims to have a heart. "We Jews are known for our mercy and compassion." yet he showed no mercy or compassion for the child he kidnapped, choked, bludgeoned and set ablaze.

Maybe the psychological issues were caused by living in Israel.
