Sayyed Ali Fadlallah: Zionist Atrocities in West Bank Tantamount to Genocide
Top Lebanese cleric described the atrocities committed by Zionist settlers in the West Bank as being tantamount to genocide.
Sayyed Ali Fadlallah condemned the attacks by Zionist settlers against the oppressed Palestinian people and called on Arab and Muslim countries to support Palestinians, al-Manar TV network reported.
He said the attacks are part of a scheme to pave the way for the Zionist regime to continue Judaization of Quds and al-Aqsa Mosque.
Fadlallah also condemned the silence of Arab countries over the crimes committed by the Zionists.
In the latest atrocity in Palestine, Zionist settlers set two houses on fire in the West Bank.
On July 31, a large fire broke out after settlers threw firebombs and Molotov cocktails into two Palestinian houses in the town of Duma, located 25 kilometers (15 miles) southeast of Nablus. A Palestinian toddler burned to death as a result.
The incident sparked angry reactions from Palestinians, including political and resistance groups.
The father of the 18-month-old baby boy also succumbed to his burns later.
Sa’ad Dawabsheh, the 32-year-old father of Ali, died early on Saturday.
He had been left with second-degree burns over more than 80 percent of his body following the late July firebombing. His wife, Riham and four-year-old son Ahmad remain in critical condition in hospital.
