Israel Bulldozes Family Homes Of Suicide Bombers

Statement Issued By Israel Defense Force - The Demolition of the Houses of Two Terrorists

As part of the ongoing war against terror and its infrastructure, IDF forces demolished the house of Hamas terrorist Basam Takwari in Hebron. Takwari carried out the May 18, 2003, suicide bombing on a Jerusalem bus at the French Hill Junction which killed 7 people and wounded 20.

In addition, IDF forces demolished overnight the house of Hamas terrorist, J'ahad J'abri in Hebron. J'abri carried out the suicide bombing near the A-Ram checkpoint on May 18, 2003.

The demolition of terrorists' houses sends a message to suicide bombers and their accomplices that their actions have a price that will be paid by all those involved in hostile terrorist activity.

The IDF will continue to use all available legal means to strike at terrorists, their dispatchers, and all those who assist them.
