IDF soldiers distributed early Wednesday morning a demolition order issued against the home of one of the terrorists responsible for a deadly shooting attack in Tel Aviv in 2016.

In the June 8th, 2016 attack, two residents of the Palestinian Authority-controlled town of Yatta south of Hevron opened fire on diners at a restaurant in the Sarona Market in Tel Aviv. The pair then fled the restaurant, shooting at pedestrians as they fled.

The demolition order issued permits IDF forces to demolish the second story of the home after a 72-hour notice.

Elsewhere in Judea and Samaria, IDF forces captured 21 wanted suspects, including 17 suspected terrorists who are believed to have committed terror attacks against Israeli civilians and security forces.

The arrests included joint efforts between the IDF, Shin Bet internal security agency, Israel Police, and the Border Police.
