The Knesset Interior Committee on Tuesday convened for a "quick deliberation" of the fact the house of the "Mercaz Harav" terrorist in Jebl Mukaber was not demolished by Israel following the attack. The committee hosted families of the victims and representatives from the various ministries pertaining to the issue. During the meeting, the families and several MKs called on Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Defense Minister Ehud Barak to expedite the process of carrying out a demolition order against the house, part of which was built illegally.
