The Israel Defense Forces announces that the home of a Palestinian gunman who killed an Israeli soldier at a checkpoint near Jerusalem last month is slated for demolition.

The gunman, Udai Tamimi, is accused of killing Sgt. Noa Lazar, 18, and seriously wounding a civilian guard on October 8 at a checkpoint near the Shuafat refugee camp in East Jerusalem.

He fled the scene and was killed attempting another attack 11 days later, during which another security guard was hurt.

Israel regularly demolishes the homes of Palestinians accused of carrying out deadly terror attacks as a matter of policy.

An appeal can be submitted on his behalf, but such attempts rarely succeed.
