Four Israelis to be charged with anti-Arab 'terror': justice

A Palestinian man stands on December 4, 2015 at the entrance of the burnt-out home of Saad Dawabsha, who was killed alongside his toddler and wife when their house was firebombed by Jewish extremists on July 31, 2015 in the West Bank village of DumaSecurity officials told AFP Saturday night the charges are linked to the July firebombing of a Palestinian home in the West Bank village of Duma, which resulted in the death of three members of the Dawabsha family. Israel has been under heavy pressure to try those responsible for the attack, with rights groups questioning the delay in the case and contrasting it to the swift reaction often following Palestinian attacks. Supporters of the suspects — religious extremists known as “hilltop youth” who oppose the “secular” Israeli state — denounced those methods as torture.
