    The family of a six-year-old Palestinian boy who survived a firebombing that killed his parents and brother is launching a legal action against the Israeli government.

    Two Israeli settlers were charged with the murders of Ahmad Dawabsheh's family following the attack in July 2015,

    But his relatives say Israel - through its policy of illegal settlement in the occupied West Bank - bears the ultimate responsibility.

    Al Jazeera's Harry Fawcett reports from Duma in the occupied West Bank.
