IDF forces issued demolition orders Tuesday morning for the homes of the families of terrorists responsible for the murder of two Israeli armed services members.

One order was issued against the terrorist driver responsible for the murder of Elhai Taharlev, an IDF soldier run down outside of Ofra roughly three months ago. The terrorist’s home is located in Silwad, the Arab village opposite Ofra, near the scene of the murder.

The second demolition order was issued for several homes in the village of Deir Abu Mashal near Ramallah, where the murderers of slain Border Police officer Hadas Malka lived. Malka was killed by the three terrorists in a combination shooting-stabbing attack near the Old City of Jerusalem several weeks ago.

Security forces also arrested 15 wanted Arab suspects overnight across Judea and Samaria.

The joint operation between the IDF and the Shin Bet internal security agency netted a Hamas terrorist in Deir Samet south of Hevron, as well as funds transferred by the terror group.

The money had reportedly been given to the family of an Arab terrorist responsible for a ramming attack in 2015.

In Shechem and the nearby village of Salem, IDF, Shin Bet, and police forces found a makeshift Carlo-style submachine gun.
