Terrorist israeli settlers attack sleeping Palestinian family
Suspected Israeli extremists fire smoke grenades into the house of a Palestinian family in the occupied West Bank and scrawl Hebrew graffiti on its walls, police say.
The family was asleep when the Tuesday morning attack happened in the town of Beitillu but escaped unscathed, an Israeli police spokesman said.
The inscription on the wall referred to “the detainees of Zion” who have been arrested by Israel in connection with a deadly July arson in which Palestinian baby boy Ali Dawabsheh lost his life.
In the attack, Israeli settlers threw firebombs and Molotov cocktails into two Palestinian houses in the town of Duma, located 25 kilometers (15 miles) southeast of Nablus in the West Bank.
The toddler’s 32-year-old father, Sa’ad Dawabsheh, died a week after the assault and his mother Riham Dawabsheh succumbed to severe burns she had sustained in the incident.
