Israel Demolishes Home of Palestinian Who Killed 2 Officers

Thursday, 03 December 2015 02:01 PM

JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel on Wednesday demolished the home of a Palestinian who killed two officers and wounded several others in an attack last year, police said.

Police spokeswoman Luba Samri said security was out in force Wednesday in the Shuafat refugee camp in east Jerusalem.

Police have said Ibrahim Al-Akri drove his minivan into a train platform then attacked bystanders. He was shot dead at the scene.

Israel is currently struggling to contain near-daily Palestinian attacks that have been ongoing for over two months with no signs of relenting. Palestinians have killed 19 Israelis in stabbings, shootings and attacks in which cars or other vehicles were used to run over or ram into pedestrians. At least 100 Palestinians have been killed, including 65 said by Israel to be attackers. The rest were killed in clashes with Israeli forces.

Last month, Israel renewed a policy of demolishing homes of Palestinians accused of carrying out deadly attacks.

This story has been corrected to show that the demolition took place in the Shuafat refugee camp, not the Palestinian neighborhood.
