Palestinians hold a funeral for the father of a family who succumbed to his injuries after an arson attack by Israeli settlers against his home in the occupied West Bank. The funeral was held in the village of Duma near Nablus. 32-year-old Sa’ad Dawabsheh died of second-degree burns on Saturday. His 18-month-old son Ali also lost his life after the attack last Friday. Dawabsha’s wife Riham and four-year-old son Ahmed who’ve suffered serious injuries are fighting for their lives. The funeral is held amid reports of fresh settler violence against Palestinian villagers. They have firebombed another house in a village in northern West Bank. Meanwhile, Palestinian resistance movement Hamas, has called on Palestinians to be prepared to confront the Israeli regime and the QUOTE murderous settler attacks.
