Israel was set on Wednesday to raze the West Bank house belonging to a Palestinian laborer who carried out a terror attack with a hammer in Modi'in last week.

Security forces, acting with instruction from the political echelons, cooperated with the Civil Administration planned to demolish the home of Ismail Musa Muhammad Alhadidi in the Palestinian town of Beit Liqya, located near Ramallah.

Last Tuesday, the 39-year-old hacked  with a hammer two other workers at construction sites in the Israeli city’s Tziporim neighborhood.

One victim was severely wounded, the other suffered moderate wounds.

Since the terror wave gripped the capital in early October – largely fueled by Palestinian incitement – the government has expedited demolition orders against all terrorists responsible for Israeli murders.

Authorized demolitions have been carried out in both Jerusalem and the West Bank since the terror wave started on October 1.
