Clashes break out after IOF blow up, demolish homes in Ramallah 

Ramallah/ PNN/

Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) on Thursday morning blew up three homes, sealed shut a fourth in two West Bank villages, for families whom Israel says were involved in anti-Israeli attacks this year.

IOF broke into Deir Abu Meshal village northwest of Ramallah and demolished the family homes of Baraa Saleh and Osama Ata, who were shot dead by Israeli police after carrying out an attack against Israeli police in Jerusalem at the end of June, killing one officer.

IOF also blocked with cement the home of Adel Ankoush in Deir Abu Meshal, who was also shot dead after being engaged in the same Jerusalem attack, after they were unable to blow it up for being too close to other homes and residential buildings.

Meanwhile, an army force stormed the village of Silwad, north of Ramallah, and blew up the home of Malek Hamed, currently in Israeli jail, who allegedly carried out an attack on Israeli soldiers near Ofra settlement last April killing a soldier.

Israel also revoked the work permits of the families.

Intense clashes broke out between IOF and the Palestinian locals in the villages following the blow-up, leading to two injuries among the Palestinian youth.
