How to Extract Whatsapp Messages from iPhone Backup

“I want to get back some important Whatsapp messages from my iTunes backup of my iPhone 7. However, I can’t selectively restore my data from iPhone backup and all my iPhone data will be wiped from my iPhone after restoring. That’s ridiculous. Why can’t I only extract Whatsapp messages from my iPhone backup to computer without restoring iPhone? Can I do that with third party software? Thanks in advance!”
