Jenin (QNN)- Israeli occupation authorities on Sunday night informed four Palestinian families of their decision to demolish their houses in Silat al-Harithiya town in Jenin, as a punitive measure as their sons are accused of carrying out last week’s alleged shooting attack.
Local sources said the Israeli occupation forces last night raided the town of Silat al-Harithiya and took the measures of the house of Ahmed Muhammad Yassin Jaradat, the father of brothers Ghaith and Omar.
The forces also measured the houses of another three families, the siblings’ uncle, as they are also accused of helping the two brothers.
The residents of the houses have been evacuating the furniture; the demolition operation will make over 30 people homeless.

Israeli media reported that the two Palestinians suspects accused of carrying out the alleged shooting are brothers Omar and Ghaith Jaradat, aged 20 and 17 years old.
