The IDF Spokesperson's Unit has announced that during the course of Monday night, Israeli forces destroyed the house of Bashar Massalha, the terrorist who killed American tourist Taylor Force and injured ten others in an attack in Jaffa earlier this year.
Massalha's house was located in the village of Kafr Haja, near Nablus in the West Bank. Although he was killed by security forces at the scene of the attack, the punitive measure was nevertheless carried out as a deterrence against would-be attackers.
Criticism of the practice has labeled the demolitions as illegal collective punishment against the families of terrorists.
The operation was conducted in conjunction with the Border Police and the Civil Administration in the territories.
