Palestinian fury as ‘Jewish settler’ arson attack kills child

Palestinian officials say Israel is “fully responsible” for the death of an infant in an arson attack blamed on Jewish settlers in the West Bank.

The 18-month-old boy was killed in the night-time attack on two homes in the village of Duma. His parents and brother suffered serious injuries.

Slogans in Hebrew, including the word “revenge”, were found sprayed on a wall of one of the firebombed houses.

Israel’s prime minister called the attack “reprehensible and horrific”.

“This is an act of terrorism in every respect. The State of Israel takes a strong line against terrorism regardless of the perpetrators,” Benjamin Netanyahu said in a tweet.
