There have been calls for revenge in the West Bank after a Palestinian toddler was burned alive in an arson attack blamed on radical Jewish settlers, the Euro News website reports today (July 31, 2015).
Ali Saad Dawabsheh, 18 months old, died in this morning's attack on his home in Duma, a village near the city of Nablus.
Amid the grief at his funeral, there were calls for revenge. Palestinian officials hold Israel responsible.
"It is a war crime and a crime against humanity," said Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. It will most likely be added to the list of war crimes against Israel that the Palestinians have already presented to the world court in The Hague.
