The IDF and Civil Administration issued on Tuesday a demolition decree announcing the state's intention to demolish the home of Muhammad Taraireh, the terrorist from Bani Naim who murdered 13-year-old Hallel Yaffa in her bed in Kiryat Arba last week.

Taraireh was shot dead by an armed civilian response team during the attack. Meanwhile, security forces nabbed seven suspects across the West Bank in overnight raids between Monday and Tuesday, who allegedly took part in terrorism, and violent disturbances, attacking Israeli civilians and security forces. The suspects included two wanted Hamas members in Nablus, and a third Hamas member in Awarta, southeast of Nablus.

A fourth Hamas man was taken into custody in Tubas, north of Jericho.

IDF soldiers also seized locally produced firearms in arms raids in Beit Fajr, southwest of Bethlehem.
