A Palestinian infant was killed in the West Bank early Friday morning in an arson attack, apparently by Jewish extremists.
Two homes in the Palestinian village of Duma, south of Nablus, were set alight, and the Hebrew words â€œRevengeâ€ and â€œLong live the king messiahâ€ were spray-painted on their walls, alongside a Star of David.
Palestinian medical sources said the child, Ali Saad Dawabsha, was 18 months old.
The infantâ€™s parents, as well as his 4-year-old brother, were all injured and evacuated to the hospital. They were said to be in moderate-to-serious condition, with burns on large parts of their bodies.
