The Israeli military issues a demolition order for the home of a Palestinian terrorist behind a deadly terror attack in November in Jerusalem’s Old City.

On November 21, Fadi Abu Shkhaydam opened fire at a number of Israeli men in the alleyways of the Old City, killing one man, Eliyahu Kay, and injuring four others, two of them seriously. Border Police officers returned fire, killing Abu Shkhaydam.

The military initiated the process of demolishing Abu Shkaydam’s home in East Jerusalem’s Shuafat refugee camp shortly after the attack. His family appealed the decision in court, but their requests were rejected.

The head of the Israel Defense Forces’ Home Front Command, Maj. Gen. Ori Gordin, signed the seizure and demolition order for Abu Shkaydam’s home, the military says.
