Mother of TA fugitive says authorities threatened to demolish home

The mother of a fugitive man suspected of shooting up a Tel Aviv bar on Friday, killing two Israelis, before going on to kill a cab driver elsewhere in the city, says security forces threatened to demolish her home if she did not give up her son’s location.

“They threatened as if they intended to demolish our house if we don’t disclose the place where he is hiding,” she says, according to Ynet.

“I told them we do not know where he has gone.”

Jaudat Milhem, Nashat Milhem’s brother, said earlier that his family condemns the attack, but added that he and his father, who was also arrested, have nothing to do with the shooting.

A court ordered the brother, Jaudat Milhem, who was released earlier today from police custody, not to enter his hometown, the Israeli Arab town of Arara, until further notice. Jaudat Milhem was arrested following the attack on suspicion that he had been an accomplice.
