The High Court today ordered the demolition of the homes of the families of the terrorists who carried out the attack at Damascus Gate in Jerusalem, in which border policeman Hadas Malka was murdered.
The judges unanimously rejected the petition filed by the terrorists' families. The demolition order will be implemented by August 9.
The families claimed the Israeli government was violating the rights of innocent people.
The judges did, however, accept part of the petition. They instructed security forces to leave the lower floors of the buildings intact.
"There is no dispute about whether the three men participated in the incident, and we must reject with two hands the claim that it is important to ask who is the terrorist who stabbed Hadas Malka,"Justice Yitzhak Amit wrote.
