Riham Dawabshe, the mother who was injured in July’s Duma arson fire died of her wounds late Sunday night.
The arson was the third in a series of four mysterious fires in the Duma village in 2015, all of which struck the Dawabshe clan, who make up two-thirds of the village. The third fire resulted in death of a baby, the father, and now the mother. A four-year-old son remains alive and in the hospital in serious condition.
The third fire was quickly blamed on settlers due to some crudely written Hebrew graffiti found on a wall, leading to mass administrative detentions and distancing orders of dozens of young settlers.
The Palestinian Authority police quickly claimed an electrical malfunction was the cause of the fourth fire, despite Arab rumors of an ongoing clan war and a Molotov cocktail. The Israeli police did not investigate the fourth fire.
No explanation has been given for the first 2 fires, one which struck a Dawabshe family home, and the other burning up a Dawabshe family car.Jewish Press News Briefs
