Suspected Jewish attackers torched a Palestinian home in the occupied West Bank Friday, killing an 18-month-old child and seriously injuring his parents and brother, an act that Israel's prime minister described as terrorism.It was the worst attack by Israeli assailants since a Palestinian teenager was burned to death in Jerusalem a year ago. That followed the killing of three Israeli teenagers by Palestinian militants in the West Bank.The Israeli military boosted forces in the area to search for the suspects, described by a spokesman as "two masked terrorists", and prevent any escalation. The attack was widely condemned in Israel.In the West Bank city of Hebron stone-throwing clashes between Palestinians and Israeli soldiers broke out after Friday prayers.Near Ramallah Israeli soldiers opened fire at a Palestinian who threw a fire-bomb at them, the military said and medics said he was seriously injured.Israeli Police spokeswoman Luba Samri said the torching appeared to have been a "Price Tag" attack, a reference to settlers who exact retribution for Israeli government curbs on settlement expansion.Israeli settlements are considered illegal under international law.
