Israeli forces measure home of Palestinian attack suspect

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces took measurements of the wanted Palestinian former prisoner, in the Kobar village in the central occupied West Bank district of Ramallah, on predawn Wednesday, in preparation to demolish the structure.

Israel accuses former prisoner Assem Omar al-Barghouthi, 30, brother of killed Palestinian Saleh al-Barghouthi, of carrying out a shooting attack, killing two Israeli soldiers and injuring two others east of al-Bireh City last Thursday.

Israeli forces also detained Assem's father, Omar, and his brother Assef.

Israeli forces had briefly detained Assem's wife, on predawn Tuesday, to pressure him to turn himself in.

After taking measurements of the house, Israeli forces informed the al-Barghouthi family that a military order to demolish the family home was issued, without giving the family a specific date of when the demolition would be carried out.

Assem al-Barghouthi is a former prisoner who had spent 11 years in Israeli jails and was released one year ago.
Israel always demolishes family homes of Palestinians, who were involved in attacking Israelis as part of its collective punishment policy against the Palestinian people.
