Sa’ad Daobsa, the father, was being treated for second-degree burns to more than 80 percent of his body in Soroka hospital.

“His wife and son , Ahmad, also remain at the hospital. They both remain in very serious condition,” hospital spokesperson said in a statement.

“In fact the mother’s condition for several days was thought to be worse than the father’s so the fact that he succumbed to his wounds raises a lot of concern about her,” the statement added.

Early last Saturday morning, a firebomb was thrown into the family’s bedroom in a suspected settler arson attack, setting the house alight.
