IDF engineers accompanied by Border Police forces and the Civil Administration destroyed last night the home of Hussein Mohammed Abu Gosh, the terrorist who along with an accomplice murdered Israeli woman Shlomit Krigman in an attack on a supermarket in Beit Horon.
During the demolition operation local Arab residents rioted, hurling rocks, firebombs, cinderblocks and improvised explosives at Israeli forces. Two solders were lightly wounded as a result, and are being treated at Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital.
IDF forces responded first with non-lethal riot control weapons, but were eventually forces to use live fire against several main instigators of the violent attacks. A number of hits were identified.
Krigman was stabbed to death in the attack in January, which also left another 23-year-old woman seriously injured.
