IDF demolishes home of terrorist who perpetrated deadly November attack – Palestinian media

Palestinian media reports that security forces destroyed the Hebron home of one of the perpetrators of a deadly November shooting attack by terrorists who targeted the “tunnels” checkpoint on the West Bank’s Route 60, south of Jerusalem.

Cpl. Avraham Fetena, 20, a Military Police soldier from Haifa was critically wounded in the attack and later succumbed to his wounds.

Police said the three gunmen had planned to carry out a much larger massacre in Jerusalem.

Jerusalem defends the practice of razing the family home of attackers as a deterrent against future assaults. Over the years, a number of Israeli defense officials have questioned the efficacy of the practice, and human rights activists have denounced it as unfair collective punishment.
