Hussein Dawabsha, grandfather of six-year-old Ahmad Dawabsha, survivor of a settler arson attack, said that Ahmad is missing his family and keeps saying that he wants to meet them.
Hussein said that Ahmad, a few days ago “took a dead bird to his mother’s grave and told [the bird] to say hello to her.”
Last year, Israeli settlers overnight threw burning cocktails into the home of the Dawabsha in Duma near Nablus, northern West Bank, killing 18-month-old Ali Dawabsha and both his parents.
Following that, Israeli settlers celebrated the crime by burning and stabbing photos of Ali and his family, in midst of racist slogans.
The celebration, which took place in December 2015, was later called “The Hate Wedding.”
In a statement, the grandfather said he will be a witness in a court against the settlers who held the celebration even though it will be “very hard for him.”
Dawabsha told Walla Israeli website that his participation in the court will be like seeing the murder of his daughter, just like the time he saw the video of the wedding, adding that such criminal behaviour should be stopped.
