In an overnight operation, the IDF Engineering Corps unit early Tuesday destroyed the homes of two Palestinian terrorists who carried out separate attacks in November.

The West Bank home of Raid Khalil bin Mahmoud, 36, who murdered two Israelis and moderately wounded a third during a rampage in a southern Tel Aviv office building on November 19, was destroyed in the first operation of the evening.

Afterwards, the home of Muhammad al-Haroub, who killed three, including 18-year-old American student Ezra Schwartz, and wounded seven others, in a shooting attack in Gush Etzion, also on November 19, was torn down.

Also early Tuesday, security forces arrested 19 Palestinian suspects in West Bank raids, including seven who are suspected of taking part in disturbances and unorganized terrorism, the IDF said.

Units arrested three Hamas members in Beitunya, southwest of Ramallah, and a fourth in Ein Um A-Sarait, south of Ramallah.

Additionally, IDF units working with the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) and Border Police, launched an operation to seize illegal weapons in Nablus.

Security forces located a lathe for producing arms, grenades, magazine clips and ammunition, and arrested seven terrorism suspects who were found to possess weapons in their home.

In another raid launched by the Menashe territorial division and the Sa’ar Battalion (of the 188 Armored Brigade), soldiers found two handguns and three commando knives, as well as a grenade, an ammunition clip and IDF vests.
