IDF troops overnight Tuesday entered the Palestinian Arab village of Kobar, near Ramallah, and demolished the home of Omar Al-Abed, the terrorist who carried out the attack in Halamish on July 21.

Yossi, Chaya and Elad Salomon were murdered in the attack.

Earlier this week, five members of Al-Abed’s family were arrested on suspicion of failing to report a crime.

The mother of the terrorist was previously arrested and charged with incitement for praising her son's murderous act.

Al-Abed broke into the Salomon family home during a Friday night dinner as the family was celebrating the birth of a grandson.

Michal, Elad's wife, fled with their five children to the second floor, where they hid from the terrorist. A soldier who lives next door noticed the commotion and acted quickly to neutralize the terrorist.

The soldier was awarded a citation for stopping the deadly attack.
