The head of the IDF Central Command signs an order authorizing the demolition of the family home of a Palestinian gunman accused of killing a soldier in the West Bank last year, the army says.

The family of Abdel Kamel Jouri can still appeal the order to the High Court.

On October 11, 2022, Jouri and Osama Taweel, members of the Nablus-based Lion’s Den terror group, opened fire at Staff Sgt. Ido Baruch of the Givati infantry brigade’s reconnaissance unit, killing him. Baruch was shot by the gunmen while securing a march held by settlers near the Palestinian town of Sebastia. He was stationed by an interchange close to the nearby settlement of Shavei Shomron.

The pair were arrested on February 13, and a third member of the cell who allegedly helped plan the attack was killed in a raid on Nablus a week later.
