An 18-month Palestinian baby was burnt alive, his parents and 4-yearl old brother severely injured after settlers set their house on fire in Duma village, the West Bank.

The baby victim was identified as Ali Saad Dawabsheh.

Medical sources in Nablus’ Rafidia Hospital said the parents and another child suffered serious burns over 75% of their bodies.

Illegal settlers burnt today two Palestinian houses in Duma (south of Nablus city) in what evidently appears as ‘Hate Attack” against the local inhabitants. Anti-Palestinian graffiti was seen on the walls of burnt houses, reading in Hebrew: “Revenge” and “Long Live Messiah”.

Nabil Abu Rdeinah, the Spokesman of Palestinian President Mahmud Abbas, held the Israeli government fully responsible for the attack as it continues to support illegal settlement and protect vandals.

Abu Rdeinah called on the Israeli government to take ‘practical steps’ to hold the perpetrators accountable, saying verbal condemnation is no longer acceptable.

The UN has documented more than 120 attacks by Israeli settlers in the West Bank since the start of 2015.

In the recent years, Israeli settlers have carried out several acts of vandalism, arson and violence against
Palestinian properties within that has been dubbed the “Price Tag Attacks”.

Israeli settlements are regarded ‘illegal’ by the UN and most world countries since they were built over territories seized in the 1967 War.
