IDF to demolish home of suspected killer of Esther Horgen

Judah Ari Gross is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.

The Israel Defense Forces says it plans to knock down two floors of the building that were home to the Palestinian man suspected of killing Esther Horgen in a terror attack last month.

The suspected terrorist, Muhammad Mruh Kabha, was arrested shortly after Horgen’s body was found outside the Tal Menashe settlement where she lived in the northern West Bank.

The military says Kabha’s family has been informed of its intention to demolish the two floors and will have the right to challenge the order in court.
