Slain toddler’s parents, brother fighting for lives
Jalazon refugee camp: The parents and brother of a Palestinian toddler burned to death by suspected Jewish extremists were fighting for their lives Saturday, as demonstrators held a second day of protests over the arson attack.
The firebombing of the family’s home in the occupied West Bank that killed 18-month-old Ali Saad Dawabsha sparked an international outcry over Israel’s failure to get to grips with violence by hard-line Jewish settlers.
The child’s father, Saad, was being treated for third-degree burns at the Soroka hospital in southern Israel, where a spokeswoman described his condition as “critical.”
Mother Riham and four-year-old brother Ahmed were being treated at Tel Hashomer hospital near Tel Aviv, where a spokeswoman described their condition as life-threatening.
The family’s small brick and cement home in the village of Duma was gutted by fire
