Suspected Jewish extremists set fire to a Palestinian home in the West Bank on Friday in an apparent “Price Tag attack,” killing of 18-month-old Ali Saad Dawabsha and seriously injuring several other family members, an act that Israel’s prime minister described as terrorism.
The house in Duma, a small village near the city of Nablus, was torched in the early morning as the family slept. Graffiti in Hebrew reading “revenge” was scrawled on the wall outside, police and witnesses said.
Both the child’s parents and his four-year-old brother were seriously hurt. They were taken by helicopter for treatment in an Israeli hospital, officials said.
