Israeli Occupation Demolishes Palestinian Homes in West Bank

Israeli occupation authorities have demolished three homes and sealed off a fourth of Palestinians who carried out attacks that killed a soldier and a policewoman, the army said on Thursday.

Two houses were demolished in Deir Abu Mashaal, near Ramallah in the occupied West Bank, and a third was sealed off, an army spokeswoman said.

Village mayor Emad Zahran told AFP occupation soldiers entered the area around 2:00 am (2300 GMT Wednesday) with bulldozers.

A home in the West Bank town of Silwad was also demolished in response to an April 6 car-ramming attack near the Jewish settlement of Ofra that killed an Israeli soldier.

Occupation authorities regularly carriy out such demolitions, , but human rights groups slam such moves considering them as collective punishment against Palestinians.
