Netanyahu ‘shocked and outraged’ after visiting hospital bedside of Palestinian burn victim

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited the hospital bedside of the four-year-old Palestinian boy who suffered serious burns as a result of an arson by suspected Jewish extremists in the West Bank village of Duma before dawn on Friday.

In a statement released following the visit to Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer, the premier vowed that Israeli authorities would apprehend the perpetrators of the attack, which killed 18-month-old Ali Dawabsha, and left his parents and older brother with severe burn wounds.

"I just came from the bedside of four-year old Ahmed Sa’ed [Dawabsha]," Netanyahu said in a statement. "Sixty percent of his body is burned. We’re doing everything we can to save this young boy, give him a life."
