The IDF overnight Monday informed the family of Halil Jabarin, the murderer of Ari Fuld, Hy”d, that part of their home will be demolished. The terrorist lived on the third floor of a three-floor structure in the town of Yatta in the south Chevron Hills, so that is the portion of the home that will be demolished.
The family has until Sunday to file an appeal against the demolition. Such appeals are filed with the High Court, and leftist and Arab legal groups have already said that they planned to file an appeal.
Fuld, 40, a father of four, was murdered in September at the entrance to a shopping center at the Gush Etzion Junction, His murderer, 16-year-old Halil Jabarin, stabbed Fuld in the chest, wounding him critically. Fuld managed to shoot Jabarin before falling to the ground. Jabarin was eliminated when another Israeli shot at him.
Fuld was then taken to a hospital in Yerushalayim, where he passed away a short time later. The terrorist was eliminated by a shot fired by Gabi Vaknin, a resident of Gush Etzion.
Jabarin was a resident of Yatta, a village that has been a source of numerous terrorists. Jabarin did not have a record of previous arrests for security violations.
Ari was active on social media, presenting videos and images promoting tourism to Israel and especially Yehudah and Shomron.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said that “we live in this country today only because of heroes like Ari.”
Education Minister Naftali Bennett said that “he was a hero in his death, saving others.” Deputy Defense Minister Eli Ben Dahan said that “Ari was a brave Jew who worked on behalf of the Jewish people, both in hasbarah and in security. And even when he was injured in the terror attack he continued to act bravely, shooting and neutralizing the terrorist.”
