Cousin of Jerusalem terrorist had house demolished 2 weeks ago

Security officials say the terror attack in Jerusalem today may have been a revenge attack, as the man’s cousin had had his house in East Jerusalem demolished two weeks ago.

That event, along with the ongoing conflict in the Gaza Strip and tensions in the West Bank, may have encouraged Muhammed Naif El-Ja’abis to carry out the attack.

Channel 2 says Ja’abis is known to police for a previous security-related matter.
