The IDF on Monday informed the family of terrorist Kassam Shabli that his home is to be demolished in the coming days. Shabli is one of the members of the terror gang who murdered Rena Shnerb, Hy”d, and injured her father Rabbi Eitan Shnerb and brother, Dvir Shnerb, in August. Shabli is charged with providing assistance to the gang that carried out the bombing attack at a spring outside the Shomron town of Dolev.
Five terrorists, associated with the Popular Front terror group, have been arrested in connection with the attack. The group was led by 44-year-old Samar Mina Salim Arbid, a resident of Ramallah and a top Popular Front terrorist in the Ramallah area. He has been arrested and served prison sentences for security crimes, including leading riots and building firebombs during the second intifada.
Officials said that the bomb that killed Rena and injured her brother and father was particularly heavy, with over three kilos (almost seven pounds) of explosives packed inside. The bomb was hidden behind a rock, set at an angle that ensured maximum injury. The bomb was similar to many that were set during the second intifada, the officials said.
The IDF has informed the families of two other terrorists of the gang – Walid Hanashta and Yazan Magamas – that their homes are to be demolished as well. No date has been set for the demolitions. It is expected that attorneys for the terrorists’ families will appeal to the High Court for a stay of the demolition orders, IDF officials said.
