Israel to demolish homes of 5 terrorists’ families

Families of five Palestinian terrorists who murdered Jews will receive demolition orders amid ramped-up Israeli efforts to deter would-be attackers.

Those include the families of the men who killed Eitam and Naama Henkin, in a West Bank shooting attack some two weeks ago; the man who fatally stabbed Nehemia Lavi and Aharon Benita 10 days ago; and the killers of Malachi Rosenfeld and Danny Gonen in shooting attacks in the West Bank earlier this year.

Meanwhile, some 1,400 reserve Border Police officers will be called up Wednesday morning and provide additional protection in Jerusalem and the West Bank.

Additional forces will also be spread out in the areas surrounding Jerusalem, from Bethlehem to the French Hill area of the city.
