Ya’alon: Palestinian baby’s death – a “dreadful act of terror”

In the Palestinian village of Duma near Nablus, a year-old baby, Ali Dawapsha, perished and his family was badly hurt in a fire set at their home early Friday. His two siblings are in critical condition, the father seriously hurt. The Palestinians called it an Israeli hate crime. Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said this was “a dreadful and intolerable act of terror, which we utterly condemn. The murderers will be hunted down until they are caught.” Scrawled on the wall of the house was a Magen David and “Long Live the Messiah King. Vengeance!”  Israeli police, soldiers and special investigators of hate crimes and arson quickly reached the scene.
