The local council of the Palestinian Arab village of Bani Naim, east of Hevron, along with local residents and several other local institutions have teamed up to rebuild the home of terrorist Mohammed Tarayra, who murdered 13-year-old Hallel-Yaffa Ariel as she slept in her bed in Kiryat Arba on the morning of June 30, 2016.

IDF troops demolished a part of the home this week in accordance with a Supreme Court ruling that only the second story of the home would be demolished - rather than the entire structure - due to “humanitarian concerns”.

The mayor of Bani Naim, Mahmoud Mansara, told the Hamas-affiliated Palestine newspaper on Tuesday that there is a great willingness on the part of the authorities and the residents to rebuild Tarayra’s home and they have already begun practical steps towards accomplishing that goal.

According to Palestine, similar campaigns are being held in the villages of Surif and Yatta in an attempt to rebuild the demolished homes of two terrorists who carried out the attack in the Sarona Market in Tel Aviv.

A delegation of Palestinian Arab parliamentarians reportedly expressed solidarity with the owners of the demolished houses and called for the establishment of a ministerial committee that would regulate the issue, work to grant compensation to the terrorists’ families, and accuse Israel of seeking to expel the Palestinians from their towns through a “massacre” aimed at the Palestinian people and their land.
