West Bank arson attack: Mother of baby victim dies

Riham Dawabsha suffered severe burns to 90% of her body in the July attack, blamed on Israeli settlers.

Ali, her 18-month-old son, died during the attack while her husband succumbed to his injuries a week later.

The deaths provoked international condemnation and led to Israeli and Palestinian protests.

The Dawabsha family’s home was one of two houses in the village of Duma set on fire and daubed with slogans in Hebrew, including the word “revenge”.
