The Jerusalem Post reports: A fire tore through a Palestinian house in Duma, near Nablus, on Sunday morning, in what police and Shin Bet investigators are probing as a possible arson attack. A video of the attack appears below:

An official with the Judea and Samaria police said Sunday afternoon that the cause of the fire that destroyed the house of Ibrahim Muhammad Dawabsha was still unclear, and that they had yet to determine definitively that it was arson. The official said that investigators are checking all possible motives, including an attack by Israeli extremists or a local feud of some sort involving the family.

In a statement put on Sunday evening the Shin Bet and the police said that their initial findings were not consistent with a nationally motivated Jewish terror attack.

Police reported that one Palestinian was taken from the scene suffering from smoke inhalation, but no other injuries were reported.
