IDF Engineering Corps, backed by the elite Egoz Unit from the Golani Brigade, demolished the home of terrorist Rajab Aliwa, who put together and headed the terrorist cell that shot and killed Eitam and Na’ama Henkin in their car while their four children watched on October 1.
The Henkins were driving with their children on a road leading to Eilon Moreh in the West Bank. Eitam, a resident of Israel, also held American citizenship.
Aliwa’s home in Dahia, Nablus, was demolished early on Thursday morning.
According to the investigation by security forces, Aliwa recruited the terrorist cell, and instructed them on how to carry out attacks, as well as arming them.
There were no clashes during the demolition work.
At the scene of the demolition, Aliwa’s mother accused the IDF of destroying much more than they intended.
“They [the Israeli forces] said they want to blow-up only this side of the home, but look what they blew up – they blewup the apartment above it and the apartment underneath, and they damaged a lot of things,” she said. “They damaged three apartments, instead of damaging one apartment.”Reuters contributed to this report.
