The sister of one of the terrorists who took part in this week’s massacre at a synagogue in Jerusalem is a social worker who is employed by the city of Jerusalem, it was reported on Thursday night.

She has taken several days off in order to be with her family during the mourning period.

The Jerusalem municipality said in response that the sister "is an outstanding social worker. We are not aware that the worker ever expressed any support for the actions of her family."

Earlier Thursday, the IDF obtained orders for the demolition of the homes of the two terrorists who carried out the attack, in which four civilians and one police officer were murdered.

The two terrorists, Ghassan and Uday Abu al Jamal, held Israeli residency and the privileges entailed by it, and one of them reportedly worked in a grocery store next to the synagogue they attacked.

Also on Thursday, demolition orders were also handed out to the family of the terrorist who attempted to assassinate Temple Mount activist Yehuda Glick last month.

The terrorist, Mu'taz Hijazi - an Islamic Jihad terrorist who was employed at a restaurant Glick was speaking at, and was eliminated by security forces while the forces attempted to stop him in his tracks - lived in the eastern Jerusalem neighborhood of a-Tur.

On Wednesday, police demolished part of the house belonging to Abdulrahman Shaloudi - the terrorist who rammed his car into a group of pedestrians in Jerusalem's Ammunition Hill, killing two people including a three-month-old baby.
