IDF soldiers approach one of Rina Shnerb's killers' home

IDF soldiers overnight Thursday destroyed the homes of the terrorists Walid Hanatasha and Wizan Megams in the city of Ramallah and in the village of Bir Zeit, which are located in the area monitored by the Benjamin spatial division.

Israeli security forces captured three suspects early Saturday, August 24, 2019, following an intensive search for the terrorists who murdered 17-year-old Rina Shnerb on the Friday before. The same terrorists seriously wounded her brother and father.

The killers used an improvised explosive device planted in the road, which they blew up as the father and his son and daughter were passing by while hiking to the Ein Buvin spring near the Jewish community of Dolev in the Samaria hills.

The homes’ demolition was carried out after petitions against the confiscation and demolition order which had been filed by the terrorists’ families were rejected by the High Court of Justice, which also rejected their request to hold another hearing on the matter.

Violent riots erupted during the demolition activities, involving dozens of local Arabs who were burning tires and throwing stones and Molotov cocktails at IDF soldiers. The soldiers responded using means of dispersing demonstrations.
