Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked issues a statement giving seven family members of a man who carried out a deadly terrorist attack in 2017 a week’s notice before they face expulsion from the country.

“In an unprecedented step I told the family of a terrorist who killed four IDF soldiers at the Armon Hanetziv promenade [in Jerusalem] that they must leave their home — and if they don’t they’ll be forcibly evicted in about a week,” Shaked says in a video statement.

The family members of Fadi al-Qanbar are not Israeli citizens and Shaked already moved to revoke their Jerusalem residency permits. Shaked did not say what country she believes will accept the seven deported individuals — who are not known to hold any other citizenship.

“This is an important step designed to prevent the next terrorist attack,” she adds. “As interior minister, I will use all tools at my disposal to protect the citizens of Israel.”

In 2017, al-Qanbar rammed a large flatbed truck into a group of soldiers at the promenade, killing 4 and wounding 16 before being shot dead.
