Israeli settlers set fire to Palestinian house in Nablus
NABLUS, (PIC)– A group of settlers set fire at dawn Wednesday to a local house in Duma town south of Nablus belonging to Dawabsheh family. Local sources told the PIC reporter that a group of settlers threw Molotov cocktails into the house which led to the outbreak of fire in the kitchen and bedroom. Fortunately, Mohamed Dawabsheh’s family managed to get out of the house in the right time. They were later taken to hospital suffering the effect of smoke inhalation. Mohamed Dawabsheh affirmed that he heard suspicious noises around the house before the incident. A slight explosion was then heard before the fire started, he continued. Local activist Ghassan Daghlas affirmed that it is a deliberate settlers’ attack. Palestinian civil defense managed to put down the fire that completely burned the kitchen and bedroom. The incident came only few days before the anniversary of the settlers’ arson attack that targeted Saad Dawabsheh family during which a Palestinian toddler and his parents were burned to death, while the four-year-old Ahmed Dawabsheh, the elder son, is still receiving treatment after sustaining burns in 60 percent of his body.
