Palestinians fume against razing of terrorist’s home

The Palestinian Authority is condemning the Monday morning demolition of a West Bank home belonging to the family of terrorist Ashraf Na’alowa.

Government spokesman Yousef al-Mahmoud calls the partial razing of the home near Tulkarem a form of collective punishment and “an act of vengeance.”

On October 7, Na’alowa, 23, killed his coworkers Kim Levengrond Yehezkel and Ziv Hajbi at a factory where all three worked in the Barkan Industrial Zone in the West Bank. Another Israeli woman was also injured in the attack.

He was killed Thursday during an arrest operation following a two-month manhunt.

The structure itself was left intact while a part of its interior was destroyed by bulldozers. Parts of the building belong to family members who were determined by Israeli security services to have played no role in the terror attack.
