The Israeli Ainister of Defense, Moshe Yaâalon, on Tuesday said that the terrorists who burned the home of the Dawabsha family, killing a baby and his parents, were identified, except that the court evidence against them is ânot enough.âYaâalon, speaking to army radio, admitted that the attack was âclearly a Jewish terror attackâ which âhe is ashamed of,â adding that âIsrael does not have enough evidence against the defendants to keep them detained or prosecute them.â
The revelation follows a similar admission from Internal Security Minister Gilad Erdan (Likud) two weeks ago that there is no evidence to try the suspects, PNN reports.
On Thursday, one of the suspects in the fatal arson attack on the Dawabsha family in July was released to house arrest.
On July 31, the village of Douma was awaken to an arson executed by extremist Israeli settlers who attacked and burned the family house while they were all asleep.
The terrorist attack lead to the immediate death of Ali Dawabsha (18-months), while the father, Saâad, succumbed to wounds a week after, and the mother, Riham died one month later. Only Ahmad Dawabsha (4) survived the attack, and is still recovering in the ICU for over four months, now.
