A Palestinian child went missing in East Jerusalem early Friday, a local news site reported, two days after a teenager was kidnapped and killed by suspected settlers in the Israeli-occupied city.

Wafa news agency said a 13-year-old boy was last spotted walking near a mosque in the neighborhood of Wadi al-Joz around dawn.

Witnesses told the agency that they saw a settler car driving in the area around the same time the boy went missing.

Israeli police were reviewing CCTV footage from cameras set up in the area to determine if the boy was kidnapped, the report added.

In a separate incident, a group of settlers Thursday night was reported to have tried to kidnap a seven-year-old Palestinian boy from his Jerusalem neighborhood of Beit Hanina.

Ma'an News Agency reported that family members of Mohammed al-Kiswani chased off four settlers who attempted to snatch the boy as he played outside after breaking Ramadan fast.

The incidents come as the family of 16-year-old Mohammed Abu Khudair prepare to lay him to rest Friday, two days after he was kidnapped and killed in Jerusalem.

The charred remains of Abu Khudeir were discovered in a forest hours after his family reported him missing.

CCTV footage from Wednesday's abduction shows suspected settlers forcing the teen into a car around dawn before speeding away.

Hundreds of Israelis had taken to the streets Tuesday chanting "death to Arabs" after the bodies of three Israeli settlers were discovered in the West Bank.
