A Palestinian baby was burned to death and three other members of the family were injured in a suspected Jewish arson attack on their house in the West bank. 

Suspected Jewish extremists threw firebombs into the house of the Palestinian family living in West Bank's Kfar Douma village, and also spray-painted Hebrew graffiti that read "revenge" and "long live the Messiah", Haaretz reported. 

The attack took place late Thursday, while The Jerusalem Post reported that it occurred early on Friday. 

Ali Dawasha, a one-and-a-half-year-old, died from burns in the arson attack, while three other people were injured. 

"This is a suspected attack with nationalist motives," police spokesperson Luba Samri was quoted as saying. 

Israeli papers called the incident a 'price tag' attack, a term used to refer to hate crimes by Jewish extremists.
