Israel arrests youths over West Bank arson attack

Israeli authorities have arrested several youths in connection with a fatal arson attack on a Palestinian family’s home in the West Bank.

The Shin Bet security agency said the youths were believed to be affiliated with a Jewish terrorist organisation.

The killing of Saad and Riham Dawabsha and their 18-month-old son, Ali, in the village of Duma four months ago provoked international condemnation.

Another son, four-year-old Ahmed, is still being treated for his wounds.

The family’s small home was firebombed in the night, and daubed with slogans in Hebrew, including the word “revenge”.

The attack was condemned by the Palestinian and Israeli leaders, and denounced as an “act of terrorism” by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The investigation has been subject to a court gagging order, though Palestinians have expressed frustration at what they see as a slow pace to make any arrests.
