Israel to punitively demolish home of Palestinian prisoner near Jenin

JENIN, Thursday, January 14, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli occupation forces today notified the family of Mr. Mohammad Mraweh Kabaha, a prisoner in Israeli detention, about their intention to demolish their house in the village of Tura, located southwest of Jenin city in the occupied West Bank, according to Kabaha's family.

Mo'ayyad, Kabaha's brother, said that Israeli occupation army informed them of a court ruling which orders the punitive demolition of their house next week, in retaliation for his brother's alleged killing of a colonial Israeli settler last month.

The house has an area of 180 square meters, and is a shelter for a family of five, including four children.

Israeli occupation authorities have long used to punitively demolish the family homes of Palestinians accused of carrying out attacks on Israelis, a policy that Israel does not apply to Israeli settlers who are involved in fatal attacks against Palestinians.

The policy has been widely condemned by human rights groups as a collective punishment and a war crime.
