Israeli settlers torch Palestinian home near Ramallah


Israeli settlers set fire to a Palestinian home northeast of Ramallah early Sunday, an official told Ma'an.


Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian official who monitors settler activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that a group of extremist settlers raided the village of Khirbet Abu Falah and torched the home of Abd al-Karim Hussein Hamayil.

The settlers threw a fire bomb into the house through a window before fleeing the scene, Daghlas said.

He said Hamayil's widow and her three daughters were inside the house at the time of the attack.

A number of rooms were torched, but no injuries were reported.

The settlers also spray-painted "death to Arabs" and "vengeance" on the house in Hebrew. more
