Israel freezes demolition of attack suspect's home

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The Israeli Supreme Court decided, on Thursday, to freeze the Israeli army's decision to demolish the family house of a Palestinian suspected of carrying out a shooting attack in the Barkan industrial area, near the illegal Israeli settlement of Ariel near Salfit City, in the northern occupied West Bank.

The court ruling came after an appeal was presented by the Israeli human rights group, the Hamoked Center for the Defense of the Individual, alongside Ashraf Naalwa's family, against the demolition order.

Naalwa Naawla, 23, had carried out a shooting attack in last month, in which two Israelis died and another sustained serious injuries.

Hebrew-language news outlets reported that the decision to halt the demolition was temporary, pointing out that in addition to preventing the demolition, it also prevents the confiscation of the house until the next court session.

The Israeli army had issued the demolition order to the Naalwa family in the Shweika village, in the northern West Bank district of Tulkarem, during the past week, as a punitive measure against the family.
