The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) late Monday issued demolition orders for the family homes of four Palestinian assailants involved in two separate terror attacks which killed an Israeli border policewoman and an IDF soldier in June and April.
The families of the assailants have 72 hours to file appeals against the demolitions with Israel’s High Court of Justice, otherwise, the army will move forward with razing the homes in the villages of Deir Abu Mashal and Silwad outside Ramallah.
Three of the four homes slated for demolition belong to the families of assailants responsible for the death of border policewoman Hadas Malka, who was fatally stabbed during a coordinated stabbing and shooting attack outside the Damascus Gate entrance to Jerusalem’s Old City on June 6.
The army surrounded the homes of Bra’a Saleh Atta, 18, Adel Ankush, 18, and Usama Ahmed Atta, 19, in Deir Abu Mashal shortly after the attack to prepare them for demolition. All three assailants were shot dead by Israeli security forces at the scene of the attack. Read more at i24NEWS.
