IDF demolishes home of Silwan car terrorist

Israeli army engineering forces have demolished the East Jerusalem home of Palestinian terrorist Abdel Rahman al-Shaludi, who on October 22 killed two people in a hit-and-run car attack in Jerusalem.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had ordered the demolition of the homes of Jerusalem terrorists last week, but this morning’s razing of al-Shaludi’s home in Silwan is the first time the instruction was carried out.

Al-Shaludi ran his car into a light rail station killing three-month-old Israeli-American Chaya Zissel Braun and 22-year-old Karen Yemima Mosquera of Ecuador. Seven other were also injured in the attack. Al-Shaludi was shot by police as he tried to flee the scene and died of his wounds in hospital.
