Times of Israel reports, “Israeli troops on Wednesday razed the home of a Palestinian accused of carrying out a West Bank terror attack in December, the military said. In a predawn operation, Israeli security forces entered the West Bank town of Kobar, near Ramallah, and demolished the apartment of Salih Barghouti.”

“Barghouti was killed by Israeli troops during his attempted arrest on December 12. Seven people were injured in the Ofra attack, including a seven-months-pregnant woman who was seriously wounded and whose baby died several days later, after doctors were forced to deliver it prematurely due to her injuries.”

Relatives of Amichai and Shira Ish-Ran attend the funeral of their baby, who was born prematurely after his mother was wounded in a terror attack outside the West Bank settlement of Ofra

“A day after Barghouti was killed, his brother Asem, who had assisted him in the attack, carried out a second shooting attack at a bus stop near the outpost of Givat Assaf. His home, also in Kobar, was destroyed by the IDF last month, despite an appeal to the High Court of Justice.” (more…)
