Israeli occupation forces posted a demolition order on the home of a slain Palestinian assailant in the occupied West Bank early this morning, reported WAFA.

Mohammad Tareq Dar Yousef stabbed an Israeli settler to death on 26 July in Adam, one of more than 200 illegal Israeli colonies in the occupied Palestinian territory.

Two other settlers were also injured, before Yousef was shot dead on the spot.

Israeli soldiers raided Kobar before dawn today, to serve the demolition notice on Yousef’s family home.

The order says the family has two days to appeal, but these are almost never successful.

Israeli occupation authorities routinely carry out punitive home demolitions of Palestinian assailants or alleged assailants, even though the practice is a violation of international humanitarian law.
