Israel to demolish home of killed Palestinian as punishment

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces informed on Monday the Palestinian family of Muhammad Tareq Ibrahim Dar Yousef that their home in the Kobar village, in the central occupied West Bank Ramallah district, will be demolished.

Local sources said that Israeli forces raided the Kobar village on predawn Monday and hung the demolition notice on the Dar Yousef home.

The notice mentions that the family has two days to appeal against it.

Sources mentioned that the demolition comes as a punishment for the actions of the family's 17-year-old killed son, who carried out a stabbing attack in July in the illegal Israeli Adam settlement, in which one Israeli settler was killed and two others suffered light to moderate injuries.

Sources added that the Dar Yousef family had already abandoned their home following the stabbing attack in anticipation of the demolition.

Puntive home demolitions are a collective punishment policy, which Israel has always implemented against relatives of Palestinians who were involved in attacks against Israelis.

However, the use of such a policy only against Palestinians and not against Israelis, who have committed attacks or hate crimes against Palestinians, has only fueled more anger against the decades-long Israeli occupation.

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.

A Hebrew news outlet reported that the Palestinian teen crossed the fence surrounding the illegal Israeli Adam settlement, without sounding the sirens, he then entered and attacked three Israeli settlers in an attempt to attack a fourth settler, the Palestinian was shot and killed immediately.

Since the attack, continuous raids are being carried out by Israeli forces in the village, as well as detaining local Palestinian residents, setting up roadblocks, razing of land, and even imposed a siegeon Kobar.
