IOF demolish homes of three slain Palestinians, Jenin

PNN/ Jenin/
Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) on Monday morning have demolished the homes of three Palestinians, Ahmad Abu Al-Robb, Ahmad Kameel and Ahmad Zakarneh, who were killed in a stabbing operative in Jerusalem last February which resulted in the killing of a female Israeli soldier. 

Israeli troops stormed the town of Qabatia near Jenin at about 2 AM, evacuated the three families from their homes and began the demolition.

The three homes were bulldozed at the same time.

Intense clashes followed the demolition, where IOF opened rubber-coated metal bullets and teargas towards the youths.

These demolitions come as part of the collective punishment against the families of Palestinian attackers, which are illegal in the international law.

Following their killing as well, on February 3, IOF have imposed a closed military zone on Qabatia town, reportedly preventing all entrances and exits to and from the Jenin-district town, which counts more than 20,000 inhabitants – except for humanitarian cases, for three days.
