PLO: Israel government 'fully responsible' for toddler's death

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The PLO holds the Israeli government "fully responsible" for the death of a toddler in an arson attack carried out Friday by suspected Israeli settlers in the occupied West Bank, an official said.

"We hold the Israeli government fully responsible for the brutal assassination of the toddler Ali Saad Dawabsha," PLO official Saeb Erekat said in a statement.

"This is a direct consequence of decades of impunity given by the Israeli government to settler terrorism."

"We cannot separate the barbaric attack that took place in Duma last night from the recent settlement approvals by the Israeli government, a government which represents an Israeli national coalition for settlements and Apartheid," he added.

The senior PLO official said Israel had "paved the road" for the brutal attack by creating a culture of hate and impunity. more
