The Israel Defense Forces says troops along with Border Police officers 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.

The military says in the statement that the homes of two of the other perpetrators have already been demolished.

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.
