Israel to demolish family home of Ariel attack suspect

March 26, 2019 1:50 P.M. (Updated: March 26, 2019 3:08 P.M.)
SALFIT (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces delivered a demolition notice, on Tuesday, to the family of killed Palestinian Omar Abu Leila, 19, who carried out a stabbing and shooting attack near the illegal Israeli settlement of Ariel, in the northern West Bank district of Salfit.

The demolition notice against the family home, in the al-Zawiya town in western Salfit, allows the family until the 31st of March to appeal against the order.

Israeli forces delivered the notice to the family after raiding the town on predawn Tuesday.

Two Israelis were killed as a result of the attack, while a third was critically injured.

Israeli forces had shot and killed Abu Leila, 19, in the Abwein village, north of the central West Bank district of Ramallah, on March 22nd.

Israel always demolishes family homes of Palestinians, who were involved in attacking Israelis as part of its collective punishment policy against the Palestinian people.

Israel has come under harsh condemnation over the past several years for its response to attacks committed by Palestinians on Israelis, which rights groups have said amounted to "collective punishment" on family members and entire communities in a clear violation of international law.
