Demolition of terrorist's home (archive)IDF Spokesperson's Unit

The IDF Spokesperson's Unit confirmed on Friday morning that IDF soldiers demolished overnight Thursday two apartments in Hevron belonging to terrorist Arafat Irfaya, who murdered Ori Ansbacher in Jerusalem two months ago.

Palestinian Arabs reported that the forces arrived at the home of the terrorist's parents in Hevron, after the Supreme Court last week approved the demolition of two apartments in which the terrorist lived in the five-story building.

It was also reported that clashes broke out between the IDF and local Arabs during the demolition, and that the forces fired tear gas, but there no were reports of injuries.

Irfaya murdered 19-year-old Ansbacher in February. Irafya attacked Ansbacher and stabbed her to death in the Ein Yael forest near Jerusalem.

Attorney Leah Tsemel, who represented the terrorist, argued in the petition, among other things, that he is an illiterate who suffered from mental problems and that his actions were not motivated by nationalist motives.

The decision to demolish the terrorists' apartments was made by a majority of two judges against one. The terrorist lived with his parents in one apartment, while the second one only served him.
