Israeli forces on early Tuesday mapped for possible demolition the Nablus home of one of the Hamas terrorists who murdered three members of the Dee family.

Muad Masri carried out the attack on April 7 in the Jordan Valley along with his accomplice, Hassan Katnani. Lucy Dee, 48, and her daughters Maia, 20, and Rina, 15, were killed in the shooting on the Route 57 highway near the Hamra Junction.

The terrorists were killed by Israeli forces on May 4 in an exchange of fire after troops surrounded their hideout in Nablus’s Kasbah (Old City). Ibrahim Hura, identified by the IDF as a collaborator with the Hamas terrorists, was also killed in the raid, the military said.

Troops measured the Masri’s home in the Rafidiya neighborhood of Nablus (biblical Shechem), which is the first step to prepare for the destruction of the home in an effort to deter terrorism. 

During the mapping operation, armed men threw stones and explosives at the soldiers and fired shots at them, with the forces responding with live fire, the army said.

On May 30, Israeli forces raided Katnani’s home, also in Nablus, to map it for possible demolition. 

In other overnight activities throughout Judea and Samaria, Israeli forces arrested nine suspects and confiscated weapons.
