    A man shows a picture of 18-month-old Palestinian toddler Ali Saad Dawabsha who died when his family house was set on fire by Jewish settlers in the West Bank village of Duma on July 31, 2015. The Palestinian toddler was burned to death and four family members injured in the arson attack on two homes in the occupied West Bank.

    Israel on Sunday charged two alleged Jewish extremists over an arson attack which killed a Palestinian toddler and his parents, NBC News reported.

    The July 31 fire in the West Bank town of Duma killed 18-month-old Ali Dawabsheh; his parents later succumbed to their wounds. The case ignited a furor and delays in solving it have been blamed for sparking an outbreak of violence.

    Israel's national police said in a statement that Amiram Ben Uliel was the main suspect in the attack and has been charged with racial murder. A minor has also been indicted on conspiracy charges, police added.
