Medical sources have reported, Saturday, that Sa’ad Mohammad Dawabsha, the father of Ali, 18 months of age, who was burnt to death in an Israeli terrorist attack targeting their home last week, has succumbed to his serious wounds.The sources said Sa’ad, 32 years of age, died at the Soroka Israeli Medical Center in Be’er Sheba (Be’er as-Sabe’) of serious burns to 80% of his body.
His wife, Reham Dawabsha, 27, suffered burns to 90% of her body, and their child, Ahmad, 5 years of age, suffered second-degree burns to 60% of his body.
The Israeli side requested an autopsy, but the family rejected, and said his burial will be held Saturday in his village, Douma, in the northern West Bank city of Nablus.
After the death of the Palestinian father, the Central Command of the Israeli Army decided to increase military presence in the occupied West Bank, especially in the Nablus district, anticipating extended clashes with the Palestinians.
The infant, Ali Dawabsha, was burnt to death when Israeli terrorists firebombed the family home as they slept; his parents, and his brother Ahmad, four months of age, suffered serious burns and injuries, and were moved to Soroka and Tal HaShomer Medical Centers.
