IDF said to demolish Hebron home of brothers accused of killing Batsheva Nigri

The Israel Defense Forces destroyed the Hebron-area home of two brothers accused of killing Batsheva Nigri in a shooting attack in August, Palestinian media reported.

Nigri, a 42-year-old mother of three, was shot dead in front of her daughter in the attack on a vehicle near Hebron. Another man was seriously wounded in the shooting.

Israeli security forces arrested two men, Saqer and Mohammed a-Shanter, suspected of carrying out the shooting the following day.

Israel regularly demolishes the homes of Palestinians accused of carrying out deadly terror attacks as a matter of policy.  The efficacy of the policy has been hotly debated even within the Israeli security establishment, while human rights activists denounce the practice as unjust collective punishment.
