The IDF Engineering Corps early Wednesday demolished the east Jerusalem home of the terrorist who killed a three-month-old baby girl and a woman from Ecuador last month when he rammed his vehicle into a crowd of people in the capital.

Abdel Rahman al-Shalodi, a convicted Palestinian terrorist from the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan, was shot by police and died in the hospital after the October attack that killed the baby, Chaya Zissel Braun, and Karen Yemima Mosquera, a 22-year-old Ecuadorian.

A demolition notice signed by the IDF Home Front Command was given to al-Shalodi’s family last week.

The attack, which was captured by a security camera, took place at the Ammunition Hill light-rail stop a few hundred meters from Israel’s national police headquarters.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday ordered the demolition of the homes of the two terrorists who carried out the synagogue attack in the capital’s Har Nof neighborhood in which five people were murdered.

The directive came in an emergency security consultation meeting Netanyahu convened in his office with Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch, Israel Security Agency head Yoram Cohen, Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat, and other top security officials.

In addition to the perpetrators of Tuesday’s attack, Netanyahu also gave orders to move forward with the demolition of the homes of terrorists who carried out other recent attacks.
