Last night, the IDF (Zahal) received reports of a fire in the village of Duma, northeast of Ramallah. Two homes were set ablaze and as a result, a Palestinian child was killed and four additional family members were wounded. ​

Initial reports suggest that suspects entered the village in the early hours of the morning, set the homes ablaze and sprayed graffiti in Hebrew on the homes.

IDF (Zahal) forces are currently operating in order to locate the perpetrators of this attack.

“This attack against civilians is nothing short of a barbaric act of terrorism. A comprehensive investigation is underway in order to find the terrorists and bring them to justice,” Lt. Col. Peter Lerner explains. “The IDF (Zahal) strongly condemns this deplorable attack and has heightened its efforts in the field to locate those responsible.”
