Ali Saad Dawabsha was killed when assailants firebombed his home at night

A one-and-a-half year-old Palestinian infant was burned to death and three of his family members were seriously wounded late Thursday night after a house was set on fire in the village of Douma, near Nablus.

According to reports, settlers were those who set the house on fire after targeting it with firebombs and graffiti. The Israeli military called the attack “Jewish terror,” while Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other Israeli officials echoed the claim, vehemently condemning the attack.

At roughly 4 am Friday morning, two masked men arrived at two homes in the village of Douma, not far from the settlement of Migdalim. They spray painted graffiti reading “revenge” and “long live the Messiah” in Hebrew, breaking the windows of the homes and throwing two firebombs inside. One of the two homes was empty at the time, but there was a family in the second: the child that died, Ali Saad Daobasa, his father Sa’ad, mother Reham, and 4-year-old Ahmed.

The four were evacuated to a hospital in Nablus in the West Bank and then to the burn unit at Sheba Medical Center, Tel Hashomer.

The Israel Defense Forces confirmed a Palestinian toddler was burned to death, and that Jewish extremists are suspected to be behind the attack.

“This attack against Palestinian civilians is a barbaric act of terrorism,” IDF Spokesperson Lt. Col. Peter Lerner tweeted soon after the attack. Forces are combing the area in attempt to find the perpetrators.

According to eyewitnesses, the father was able to rescue his wife and 4-year-old, but did not see the baby due to the lack of electricity.

Local resident Mesalem Daoubasah, 23, said he saw four settlers fleeing the scene, with several local residents following in pursuit. According to Daoubasah, the settlers fled toward the settlement of Ma’aleh Ephraim.

Daoubasah added that other witnesses saw the settlers smash the windows of the house before throwing firebombs inside.

Ghassan Douglas, the Palestinian Authority official in charge of monitoring settlement activity in the northern West Bank, identified the child as Ali Saad Daobasa.

Fear of rioting and disorder at Temple Mount in Jerusalem prompted restrictions on Muslim worshiper, with only those over 50 being permitted to enter the flashpoint compound.

IF THIS WAS REVERSED, THE STORY WOULD MAKE NATIONAL NEWS! Will these poor victims get any compensation to rebuild and for damages and the death of their baby? Sadly, we probably already know the answer to this question. We need to wake people up to the reality of the Israeli occupation and continued siege in Palestine. These type of incidents happen nearly everyday, in between the bombing attacks that happen every year or two. It must stop, this is inhumane and against International Law! – Nicky Nelson

“When the Israeli government encourages settlements everywhere, they’re also encouraging these thugs to carry out these attacks. This is a war crime and a tragedy for all of us.”

Mahmoud Abbas, Palestinian Authority president
