A fire broke out after Molotov cocktails were hurled at the Duma home of a Palestinian family that was firebombed in 2015, Palestinian news agency Ma'an reported Wednesday.

According to the Palestinian report, far-right Jewish settlers threw two firebombs at the house that had belonged to the Dawabsha family, causing a fire to break out on the second floor. In July 2015, two homes were torched in the Palestinian village - a one-story house belonging to the Dawabsha family in which three fatalities occurred, and the other, a two-story home, belonging to cousins with the same last name.

Israel Radio in Arabic reported that initial police investigations indicated that the incident was not nationalistically motivated, but rather an internal village matter.

No injuries were reported in the incident that took place near Nablus.
