Israel to seal or demolish Jerusalem suspect's home

Oct. 24, 2014 4:48 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 26, 2014 12:12 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- The Israeli Minister of Internal Security Yitzhak Aharonovich said that sanctions would be imposed on the light rail attack suspect's family in Silwan in East Jerusalem.

The Israeli news website Ynet reported Friday that minister Aharonovich said that the house of Abd al-Rahman al-Shaludi would either be sealed or demolished.

Aharonovich's statement came during his visit to the the family of an Israeli child who was killed during the incident.

A lawyer for the Addameer rights group told Ma'an that the Israeli intelligence informed al-Shaludi’s father during interrogation that his son's body would be delivered "late at night" and that only 20 members of his family could be present.

Police say al-Shaludi, 21, drove his car at high speed into a group of pedestrians, killing a three-month-old baby and wounding six other people in what police described as a "hit-and-run terror attack."

After the car stopped, al-Shaludi tried to flee but was shot by police, later dying in hospital from his injuries.

Al-Shaludi's mother Inas Sharif, 42, said she was unsure what happened.

"I cannot say if it was on purpose or just a simple car accident," she told reporters at her home.

"If it was really an attack, why didn't he have explosives in his car -- or even just Molotov cocktails?"

Only hours before the incident, she had taken her son to the doctor who had advised him to see a therapist after days of exhibiting signs of mental exhaustion.
