Israel Demolishes West Bank Homes of Four Alleged Palestinian Terrorists

Israel demolished the West Bank homes of four Palestinians who allegedly killed three Israelis in two West Bank attacks.

Troops razed the homes on Saturday morning, two days after Israel’s Supreme Court rejected appeals of the demolition orders, the Israel Defense Forces said in a statement issued Saturday. The court accepted one appeal because the home was rented, but gave the family until Tuesday to vacate the premises.

One of the homes was located in Silwad, near Ramallah, and the other three were in Nablus.

The attackers allegedly were responsible for the deaths of Malachi Rosenfeld near the Alon Shvut settlement in June, and Naama and Eitam Henkin on Oct. 1 near the settlement of Itamar. The married couple was killed in a drive-by shooting in front of their four children.
