The homes of two Jerusalem terrorists were demolished Monday morning by IDF forces.
Both structures were located in the neighborhood of Jabel Mukaber, a terrorist stronghold from which a number of Arab attackers have originated.
The two terrorists, together with a third carried out lethal attacks on October 13 in Jerusalem that killed four and wounded 16 others.
In response, Israel’s High Court of Justice approved orders to demolish the homes on December 23, 2015. The orders were carried out on Monday morning (Jan 4).
The home of Baha’a Aliyan, 22, was demolished. Alliyan boarded Egged bus No. 78 in the Armon HaNatziv neighborhood together with another terrorist, Bilal Ranem, 23 and began stabbing and shooting the passengers. Two victims died instantly and a third died a few weeks later. More than a dozen others were wounded in the attack, which took place not far from the terrorists’ own neighborhood. Aliyan was shot and killed by police. Ranem was shot and wounded; he was arrested by police and taken into custody.
Aliyan’s home was completely demolished Monday morning by IDF engineers.
Nearly simultaneously, Abu Jamal rammed his Bezeq service vehicle into a crowd of people at a bus stop on Malchei Israel Street in central Jerusalem, then got out and began chopping whoever was left standing, with a cleaver. Rabbi Yeshayahu Krishevsky, z’l, 60, was killed.
The home of Ala’a Abu Jamal – who was employed as a technician with the Bezeq telephone company – was filled with concrete by the IDF engineers, and completely sealed off.Hana Levi Julian
