Reham Dawabsheh is said to be in critical condition after spending five weeks on life support at the intensive care unit of Sheba Medical Center, Tel Hashomer, the hospital said. She suffered third-degree burns on 90 percent of her body during the firebomb attack in the West Bank village of Duma on July 31 that killed her son Ali.
Her husband, Sa'ad, died a week after the attack from the burns he sustained in the incident that also wounded their four-year-old son Ahmed, who suffered second-degree burns on more than 60 percent of his body. He too is hospitalized at Tel Hashomer.
The arson attack, that has been attributed to Israeli extremists and was labeled Jewish terror by top Israeli officials, fueled unrest in Israel and the Palestinian territories and prompted the government to crackdown on far-right extremists.
