Israel to demolish home of Palestinian attacker in West Bank

August 13, 2018 Off By Web Desk

The Israeli occupation forces informed the family of Mohammad Tareq Dar Yousef that its home in the village of Kobar, west of Ramallah in the West Bank, will be demolished as a punishment for the act of their son, who killed an Israeli settler in the West Bank on July 26 before he was gunned down.

According to local sources, the army raided the village in the pre-dawn hours of Monday and posted the demolition order on Dar Yousef home while it handed the order to a neighbor. The order says the family has two days to appeal therein.

The family had abandoned its home after the attack incident in anticipation of the demolition, a collective punishment policy pursued by Israel against relatives of Palestinians involved in attacking Israelis, but not Israelis involved in terror attacks against Palestinians.

The occupation army has regularly raided Kobar since the incident, breaking into and ransacking homes, detaining residents, setting roadblocks and engaging area youths in cat and mouse chase.
