IDF troops operated on Wednesday evening in the Palestinian Arab village of Ya'bad, located near Jenin in Samaria, to demolish the home of the terrorist who carried out the shooting attack in the city of Bnei Brak in March.
According to Palestinian Arab reports, one terrorist was killed and three others were injured in an exchange of fire with the soldiers. Palestinian Arab channels published footage of the exchange of gunfire in the village.
According to the Palestinian Authority Ministry of Health, the terrorist who was killed was rushed to a hospital in Jenin, where he was pronounced dead.
In a statement, the IDF said, "On March 29, 2022, a Palestinian terrorist, Dia Hamarsha, committed a deadly shooting attack in the city of Bnei Brak, murdering five people. On April 17, 2022, the IDF notified the Hamarsha family of the intended demolition of the terrorist's residence in Ya'bad."
"On Wednesday night, IDF soldiers demolished the terrorist's residence in the town of Ya'bad. The demolition took place after the petition from the terrorist’s family was rejected by the Supreme Court."
The IDF detailed: "During the activity, hundreds of Palestinians instigated violent riots. The rioters hurled rocks and Molotov cocktails toward the soldiers, and burned tires. Palestinian gunmen also shot at the soldiers."
"The soldiers responded with riot dispersal means, and live fire toward the gunmen. Hits were identified. No IDF injuries were reported.
"During the activity, the soldiers apprehended the father of the terrorist, who was transferred to the security forces for further questioning."
