Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said on Friday that his administration will submit a motion against Israel to the International Criminal Court in The Hague on Saturday in the wake of the deadly arson attack that left an 18-month-old boy dead and his family severely injured.

A spokesperson for Abbas said on Friday that Ramallah views the Israeli government as responsible for the attack, which took place in the Palestinian village of Duma in the northern West Bank.

The Palestinians will argue before the ICC that Israel's policy of protecting Jewish settlers and expanding settlements in the West Bank encouraged incidents such as the arson that decimated the Dawabsha family.
