Israel to demolish home of two imprisoned siblings in Silat al-Harithiya

JENIN, Thursday, January 20, 2022 (WAFA) – Israeli occupation forces today informed the family of Ghaith and Omar Jaradat, two Palestinian prisoners and brothers from the town of Silat al-Harithiya in the north of the occupied West Bank, about their intention to demolish their home, according to local sources.

The two brothers were arrested by the Israeli occupation authorities on 20 December 2021 and charged with killing an Israeli settler outside the illegal settlement of Homesh at Nablus-Jenin road in the West Bank.

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.
