(June 21, 2018 / JNS) The Israeli Defense Forces demolished a home on Thursday morning that belonged to Alaa Kabha, a Palestinian who rammed his car into two IDF soldiers earlier this year, killing them both.
Capt. Ziv Daus and Sgt. Netanel Kahalani were murdered on March 16 near Mevo Dontan.
Kabha had served time in for previous security-related crimes and was released in April 2017. Kabha initially said the officers were killed in a road accident, but confessed to having nationalistic motives during interrogation.
Footage from the scene showed Kabha driving past the soldiers, then making a U-turn and accelerating towards them.
Hamas praised the killing, saying “it proves the intifada is going on.”
The demolition of Kabha’s home was carried out by the Menashe Territorial Brigade, Israeli Border Police and officers from the Civil Administration. However, damage was only inflicted on his apartment; the rest of the building was left intact.
