The Israeli government ran into an obstacle on Thursday in its struggle to bring Palestinian terrorism under control — a High Court ruling to block demolition of the homes of terrorists.
The Court issued temporary orders preventing the demolition of the homes of terrorists involved in the Har Nof massacre, the shooting of Yehuda Glick and the car terror attack at a light rail station three weeks ago, Arutz Shevareported.
The decision came after after the families of the Har Nof terrorists filed a motion arguing that razing the families’ homes was unjustified in the absence of proof that any of the relatives were involved in the attack.
The motion was filed with the assistance of an Arab organization and an Israeli NGO called Hamoked, which lists the New Israel Fund and the Ford Foundation among its donors.
In an unrelated incident on Thursday night, police and IDF forces were searching near the Doar Junction in Binyamin after receiving reports of shots being fired at passing cars. Gun shells were found in the area, Ynet said.
