Har Nof Terrorist’s Home Razed

YERUSHALAYIM (Hamodia Staff) -

The home of Ghassan Abu Jamal, one of two terrorists who massacred five kedoshim in the Bnei Torah shul in Har Nof last November, was set to be demolished on Wednesday.

Ghassan Abu Jamal’s widow was to be evicted from her home in Jabal Mukaber, in eastern Yerushalayim, after her residency status was revoked by the interior minister.

Last Wednesday, security forces sealed the home of the second terrorist, Ghassan Abu Jamal’s cousin, Uday.

Killed in the attack were Harav Moshe Twersky, Rabbi Kalman Levine, Rabbi Aryeh Kupinsky and Rabbi Avraham Shmuel Goldberg, Hy”d, as well as Druze police officer Sgt. Maj. Zidan Seif, who tried to stop the terrorists.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu ordered the demolition of the homes in November. The IDF and police blame each other for the delays.

The public is asked to continue davening for Chaim Yechiel ben Malka, who was critically wounded in the attack.
