IDF fighters, in cooperation with the Border Police, demolished the home of terrorist Ahmed Kunbe in the Jenin refugee camp overnight. Kunbe was member of a squad that carried out the shooting attack near Gilead Ranch in January 2018 that murdered Rabbi Raziel Shevach.
During the operation, the soldiers identified a terrorist squad that who threw explosive charges and opened fire on them. IDF snipers responded by firing at the attackers and moderately wounded a Palestinian Authority policeman who had opened fire. There are no casualties to our forces, and the incident is being investigated.
The demolition took place after the terrorist’s home had been demolished by IDF fighters in April 2018 and was then rebuilt.
The High Court of Justice rejected a petition filed by the terrorist’s family against the repeated demolition.
Meanwhile, overnight, terrorist targets in the Gaza Strip were attacked in response to the mortar shelling and explosives-carrying balloons from Gaza to Israeli territory. The targets included underground infrastructure used by the military wing of Hamas, hampering the terror organization’s ability to grow.
