The funeral procession for Sa'ad Dewabshe, who died on Saturday,  was set to leave the hospital in Nablus in the direction of his village of Duma.

Dewabshe succumbed to his wounds that he sustained in an arson attack on his West Bank home last Friday in which his son Ali was burned to death. His wife and surviving son are in serious condition in an Israeli hospital. Jewish terrorists are suspected in the attack.

The IDF was spread out along the route of the funeral procession in order to quell the breakout of any disturbances that may occur. 

Hamas called on the Palestinians in their masses to take part in Dewabshe's funeral. 

"The burning of the family is a turning point that will bring about the start of the intifida against the occupier in the West Bank," a Hamas statement read.
