Israel Defense Forces troops overnight Tuesday demolished the homes of terrorists Mahmoud Zaidat, 44, and Ahmad Zaidat, 24, who killed Edna Blustein, 79, and wounded 17 others in a combined stabbing and ramming attack in Ra’anana, north of Tel Aviv, in January.

Despite not having work permits and being blacklisted from entering Israel by the Shin Bet as security risks, the Palestinians had jobs at a Ra’anana car wash.

The IDF demolished their homes in Bani Na’im, five miles east of Hebron in Judea. Troops also interrogated additional terror suspects there.

In separate overnight operations across Judea and Samaria, soldiers arrested six Palestinian terrorism suspects. Since the Oct. 7 massacre, the IDF has detained some 3,850 wanted Palestinians across the area, of whom more than 1,650 are affiliated with Hamas.

On Saturday, Israeli forces found the body of 14-year-old Jerusalem resident Binyamin Achimeir, who went missing while working as a shepherd based in Gal Farm, near the Palestinian village of al-Mughayyir, 17 miles northeast of Ramallah.

Palestinian terrorists killed him in the late morning or early afternoon on Friday, according to a preliminary investigation.
