Awful: Israeli Family Hurt In West Bank Firebomb Attack

No one is safe in the recent tide of violence embroiling Israel and Palestine, not even families, which makes this whole affair all the more horrific. Two Israelis and their three children were injured in a firebombing attack near the Beit El settlement that is situated north of Jerusalem, according to the Times of Israel:

The family members suffered burns of various degrees. The youngest girl, aged four, was moderately hurt. Her brother, 12-year-old sister and mother and father were lightly injured.

The five were treated at the scene by Magen David Adom medics and evacuated to a Jerusalem hospital for further treatment.

Clashes were reported Friday afternoon throughout the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, with several Israelis and Palestinians injured in the confrontations.

Earlier this month, another Israeli family was attacked near the Neria settlement in the West Bank. Sadly, it ended with both parents, Eitam and Na'ama Henkin, being murdered in front of their children in a drive-by shooting.
