Jewish settlers set fire to a house belonging to the Dawabsheh family in the village of Duma near the occupied West Bank city of Nablus early this morning, according to eyewitness.
“A group of settlers attacked my home at dawn today, breaking a window and throwing a Molotov cocktail inside before fleeing the scene,” Yasser Dawabsheh said.
“We were lucky that I was able to hear them when they attacked, so I was able to evacuate all my family,” he said.
“Fire crews reacted quickly and put out the fire before the whole house burnt down,” he added.
Police are reportedly investigating the incident.
Their eldest son, Ahmed, 6, survived the attack, but suffered severe burns that have affected his mobility.
The attack sparked international outrage, with the family accusing Israel of dragging its feet in prosecuting the suspects, despite admissions by Israeli officials that they knew who was responsible.
