In a joint overnight operation, the IDF and Boder Police on Wednesday destroyed the house of the terrorist who carried out a stabbing attack in Hebron killing one in December of last year.
In the December 7 attack, the Palestinian knife-wielding terrorist stabbed and critically injured 41-year-old Genady Kaufman who was standing at a bus stop at near the Cave of the Patriarchs before being shot dead in the act by Border Police officers on the scene.
Magen David Adom paramedics found Kaufman lying on the sidewalk with multiple stab wounds to his upper body.
The paramedics transported Kaufman to the Shaare Tzedek Medical Center in Jerusalem while receiving life saving treatments.
Shaare Zedek listed Kaufman as being in very serious condition with chest stab wounds when he arrived at the hospital. Kaufman died of his wounds several weeks later at the hospital.
Kaufman, a resident of Kiryat Arba, was married to Veronica with whom he had two children, 19-year-old David, a soldier in the navy and Michal, 9. He worked as a security guard and gardener in Kiryat Arba.
