The Israeli occupation army at dawn Thursday detonated a house belonging to a Palestinian family near Ramallah city as part of the mass punishment policy pursued against relatives of Palestinian attackers.
According to local sources, Israeli troops stormed Deir Abu Mash’al village and forced families to evacuate neighboring homes before they embarked on planting explosives inside the house of martyr Adel Ankoush and then blasting it.
The explosion inside the house caused a fire in a nearby home and material damage to others.
Meanwhile, soldiers attacked angry local residents with tear gas. Drones were also seen overflying the village during the events.
Last Thursday, an Israeli military force had demolished two houses belonging to families of martyrs in the same village and sealed up the house of Ankoush for later demolition.
Martyr Adel Ankoush along with two other young men from the village carried out, on June 16, a shooting and stabbing attack in Occupied Jerusalem. One policewoman was killed and others were injured in the attack.
