Israeli occupation forces on Wednesday razed a house for a Palestinian martyr in east Jerusalem.
A statement released by the occupation military said that the home of the Palestinian Abdel Rahman al-Shaludi was destroyed.
Four families were reportedly living in the house and were forced to evacuate the building.
Shaludi reportedly rammed his car into a railway stop in al-Quds, killing two people on October 22. He later died of injuries sustained from Israeli forces’ gunfire.
The Israeli attack on Wednesday comes as tensions in West Bank rise, especially in the occupied city of al-Quds, where extremist Zionists have been calling for Jews to pray in the holy al-Aqsa Mosque, a desecration that is totally refused by Palestinians and Muslims.
It came also a day after two Palestinians attack in a Jerusalem synagogue on Tuesday, killing five of them, in response to the murder of the martyr Yusuf Ramuni, who was found hanged inside his vehicle late on Sunday after being beaten.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed a harsh response to the bloodshed, and pledged to speed up demolitions of the homes of perpetrators of Jerusalem operations in line with a “policy” announced earlier this month.
“This evening, I ordered the destruction of the homes of the Palestinians who carried out this massacre and to speed up the demolitions of those who carried out previous attacks,” he said.
