Updated: “Army Detonates Home Of Palestinian Political Prisoner”

Israeli soldiers wired and detonated, Wednesday, the family home of a Palestinian political prisoner, who stands accused of killing an Israeli settler, in Toura village, southwest of the northern West Bank city of Jenin.

Dozens of soldiers invaded the village, earlier Wednesday, forced the family out of their home before and wired the property for several hours, before detonating it.

The detonated home belongs to the family of Mohammad Kabaha, while the order to demolish the property was only issued on January 6th, 2021.

The two-story house provided shelter to his wife and four children, who were all rendered homeless in this act of illegal collective punishment.

The army alleges the detainee is behind the death of an Israeli settler, identified Esther Horgan, 52, who was found dead, on December 21, 2020, close to Tel Menashe illegal colony, near Nablus, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

The army claims that Kabaha killed the settler woman to avenge the death of detainee Kamal Abu Wa’ar, 46, from Qabatia town, south of Jenin.

During the invasion into the village, the soldiers attacked dozens of Palestinians, after closing and isolating the entire community, and fired a barrage of gas bombs, causing scores of injuries, including to an elderly woman who was rushed to a hospital.

Israel’s policy of home demolition is an illegal act of collective punishment that violates International Law, the Fourth Geneva Convention in addition to various international treaties, especially the 1949 Geneva Conventions which regarded the practice as a war crime.

It is worth mentioning that undercover Israeli soldiers kidnapped Kabaha on December 24th, 2020, and frequently invaded his home in addition to assaulting his family and interrogating them during the violent searches of the property.

On Wednesday afternoon, Israeli soldiers started the demolition process, the family home of a Palestinian detainee from Jenin, who stands accused of killing an Israeli colonialist settler in December of last year.

Several Israeli military jeeps and bulldozers invaded Toura village, west of the northern West Bank city of Jenin, and began preparation for demolishing the two-story home.

The Israeli decision to demolish the family home of detainee Mohammad Kabaha, was issued on January 6th, 2021.

The Israeli army alleges the detainee is behind the death of an Israeli settler, identified Esther Horgan, 52, who was found dead, on December 21, 2020, close to Tel Menashe illegal colony, near Nablus, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

The army claims that Kabaha killed the settler woman to avenge the death of detainee Kamal Abu Wa’ar, 46, from Qabatia town, south of Jenin.

Abu Wa’ar was cancer-stricken, and also contracted the coronavirus while in prison before he died following a serious deterioration in his health due to being subjected to medical neglect on the part of the Israeli Prison Authority.

It is worth mentioning that undercover Israeli soldiers kidnapped Kabaha on December 24th, 2020, and frequently invaded his home in addition to assaulting his family and interrogating them during the violent searches of the property.

The Israeli practice of home demolitions, regardless of the ‘justification’, is an illegal act of collective punishment and violates various international treaties, especially the 1949 Geneva Conventions which regarded the practice as a war crime.
