I actually found it and tried that but it fails as following:

C:\Program Files (x86)\GnuWin32\bin>bsdtar -xf
bsdtar: Unrecognized archive format: Illegal byte sequence
bsdtar: Error exit delayed from previous errors.

I searched again in
but I see that all formats are xz. ( I think that I need mingw file
becuase it is for windows, if I'm correct, so I choose to extract
gcc-linaro-6.2.1-2016.11-i686-mingw32_arm-linux-gnueabi.tar.xz )
