Israel demolishes the home of a Palestinian accused of carrying out an attack that killed a settler

Israeli forces demolished the home of a Palestinian accused of carrying out an attack that killed a settler last year today, Saturday.

Omar Jaradat’s house was blown up in air in the city of Al-Silah Al-Harithiya, west of Jenin, in the northern occupied West Bank, according to a statement released by the Israeli army.

The statement stated that clashes occurred between residents, who threw stones and Molotov cocktails at the military, and Israeli forces responded by firing semi-automatic weapons.

Two Palestinians were injured as a result of these clashes, according to Agence France-Presse.

Israeli forces blew up in air three houses belonging to members of the Jaradat family last March in Silat Al Harthiya.

Israel regularly demolishes the homes of people it accuses of carrying out attacks on Israelis in West Bank and East Jerusalem.

These operations create tension and are criticized as a form of collective punishment, but Israel insists that they bring about the attacks.

About three million Palestinians live in West Bank, occupied by Israel in 1967, as well as about 475,000 Israelis in settlements considered illegal by the international community.
