The IDF Spokesman has reported that over the course of Wednesday night, IDF and Border Police forces carried out the destruction of terrorist Mohammed Hussein Abu Hussein's house in Kalandiya.

Hussein had carried out a deadly stabbing attack, murdering 23-year-old Shlomit Krigman and wounding another civilian in the attack on the West Bank settlement of Beit Horon in January. Hussein and his accomplice were both killed during the attack by security personnel.

During a number of disturbances throughout the demolition, Palestinians threw rocks, petrol bombs and IEDs at the soldiers, resulting in two soldiers being lightly wounded. In response, the IDF used riot dispersal methods, including the targeting of ringleaders.
