Last Wednesday a Palestinian home was set on fire overnight at the village of Sinjil north of Ramallah, while its inhabitants were inside.

 

Due to the fire, five Palestinians suffered injuries from smoke inhalation and were taken to a hospital.

 

The house's wall was defaced with the inscription: "Hi from Eden, revenge." On Wednesday, Eden Attias, an IDF soldier, was killed by a knife-wielding Palestinian teenager on a bus in Afula.

 

Security forces launched an investigation into the arson, and an army official said, "The IDF views events which divert the security forces attention with the greatest severity."
