The home belonging to a terrorist who headed the Hamas cell responsible for killing a Jewish couple in the West Bank in early October was demolished early Thursday morning, according to an IDF statement.

The order was carried out and overseen by IDF engineers after Ahmed Aliwi, 37, a member of Hamas’s military wing in Nablus, was found responsible for ordering the attack that saw the murder of Eitam and Naama Henkin as they drove near Itamar with their four children.

Five suspected cell members in all were arrested in a joint security operation by the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency), IDF and Israel Police within 24 hours of the October 4th shooting.
