Ibrahim Dawabsheh, the owner of the house, said he and his wife woke up to the sounds of breaking glass, saw that their house was on fire, and ran outside. They were evacuated to Rafidia Surgery Hospital in Nablus due to smoke inhalation, and are in light condition.

Dawabsheh, a relative of last year’s victims, is a key witness to the attack that killed them and is currently testifying in the trial of two Jewish extremists – 21-year-old Amiram Ben-Uliel and a 17-year-old minor – accused of the murder of Saad and Reham Dawabsheh and their baby Ali. Duma residents claimed that the attack was “done by settlers” in order to get at Ibrahim as well.

Investigators found a brick and the remains of two glass bottles, which most likely were filled with flammable liquid, inside the room that was set on fire. Additionally, a pair of headphones was found at the scene, but it is still unclear whether or not it has any connection to the attack.

The IDF and Israel Police were at the scene assisting with the investigation. The immediate cause of the fire is not yet known.

The head of the Duma council said that the fire burnt the top floor the house while Ibrahim and his wife were inside.

Some villagers claimed that they saw “settlers” in the area, and a white Hyundai with Israeli license plates was reportedly seen in the village that night. Other residents claim that no one from outside the village was there. Youth from the village started a manhunt in the orchards close to the house.
