Unidentified attackers set fire on the house of Ibrahim Dawabsha on Sunday at dawn n Duma, south of Nablus city.
Ibrahim Dawabsha was the only witness of the deadly arson attack carried out by extremist Israeli settlers on the home of Saad and Riham Dawabsha in the northern West Bank village on July 30 last year.
Ahmad Dawabsha, now 5 years old, was the only survivor of the attack, which killed both his parents, Saad and Riham, as well as his 18-month-old brother, Ali.
Security sources said Ibrahim Dawabsha’s home was only ten meters away from the house which was burned down last year.
The sources added that Ibrahim Dawabsha and his wife were transferred to the Rafidiya hospital in Nablus for medical treatment after they suffered from smoke inhalation.
Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian Authority official who monitors settlement activities in the northern West Bank, said there are enough indications that the assailants were Israeli settlers. "The way they attacked, the type of fire bombs and the timing of the attack all indicate that it was Israeli settlers," he said.
Israeli rights group B'Tselem slammed the reaction by Israeli officials as "empty rhetoric."
"Official condemnations of this attack are empty rhetoric as long as politicians continue their policy of avoiding enforcement of the law on Israelis who harm Palestinians, and do not deal with the public climate and the incitement which serve as backdrop to these acts," the group said at the time.
