Israeli security forces have demolished or sealed with cement homes of known terrorists, such as the house of Ala Abu Jamal in the eastern Jerusalem neighborhood of Jabel Mukabar on Jan. 4, 2015, as part of a response to terror.

Palestinian Authority Arabs opened fire on Israeli security forces Tuesday when law enforcement entered Jenin to demolish the home of a terrorist.

A female Border Guard Police officer was taken to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

The home of Ahmed Kunba, charged as an accomplice in the drive-by shooting murder of Rabbi Raziel Shevach outside of his town of Havat Gilad (Gilad Farms), was successfully demolished with a bulldozer, according to a statement by the Israel Defense Forces, though the team was attacked with explosive devices and stones.

Shevach, a father of six, teacher and volunteer medic with Magen David Adom emergency service, was driving home the night of Jan. 9 when Ahmad Nassar Jarrar fired 22 shots at him, hitting him in the neck and chest.

Kunba was accused of plotting and carrying out the attack with Jarrar, and charged with numerous other terror attempts with him, including shooting at an Israeli bus and trying to infiltrate the Jewish town of Dotan.

Jarrar escaped following the attack on Shevach, but was killed in a shootout with IDF troops who tracked down his hideout outside Jenin less than a month later.
