The IDF has announced that it will demolish the home of the terrorist who in February carried out a shooting attack near Huwara, killing Hallel and Yagel Yaniv.

On Wednesday, the IDF announced that it would close off and demolish the home in which Hamas terrorist Abd al-Fattah Hussein Ibrahim Gharusha had lived.

Gharusha had been released from prison four months prior to the shooting attack, despite intelligence warnings that he constituted a security threat. In March, Israeli security forces operating in Jenin killed four terrorists, including Gharusha.

Last week, the military prosecution filed an indictment against Gharusha's sons, Khaled and Mohammed Gharusha, who are charged with intentionally causing death and possession of weapons. Their arrest has been extended until the completion of legal proceedings against them.

According to the indictment, "The accused acceded to their father's request that they take part in a murderous attack on Israeli targets, participated in planning the attack, and together with him carried out many observations to gather intelligence in order to carry it out. Just prior to the attack, the three agreed that Abd al-Fattah would carry out the terror attack alone."
