IDF soldiers on Sunday night operated in Shechem (Nablus) to map out the home of Khaled Gharusha, the son of Hamas terrorist Abd al-Fattah Hussein Ibrahim Gharusha.
Abd al-Fattah in February carried out a shooting attack near Huwara, killing brothers Hallel and Yagel Yaniv just four months after he himself was released from prison. During a March antiterror operation in Jenin, Abd al-Fattah was eliminated.
Khaled and his brother Mohammed Gharusha, who helped their father plan the shooting attack, have been indicted for intentionally causing death and for possession of weapons. Their arrest has been extended until the completion of legal proceedings against them.
The mapping was carried out in order to examine the various options for demolition.
During the mapping operation, suspects hurled rocks and explosive devices, fired explosives, and shot at the soldiers and military vehicles.
The forces responded with riot dispersal methods, as well as with fire, and one hit was identified.
In addition, the military vehicles sustained damage, but none of the forces were injured.
