IDF Demolishes Another 'Terrorist' Home
The Demolition of the House of a Terrorist in the Village of Yatta
As part of the ongoing war against terror and its infrastructure, IDF forces demolished last night (August 31, 2003), the house of Talab Mussa Shahada Mahamrah in Yatta, south of Hebron. Mahamrah, a Tanzim operative, planned and carried out a number of shooting attacks in the Zif Junction area (southern Hebron Hills).
These attacks include:
--The February 25, 2002, shooting attack which wounded one Israeli civilian.
--The July 26, 2002, double shooting attack in which four Israeli civilians were murdered and three others wounded.
--The October 8, 2002, shooting attack in which one Israeli civilian was murdered and three others wounded.
--Additional shooting attacks which resulted in no injuries.
The demolition of the houses of terrorists sends a message that anyone who participates in terrorist activity will pay a price for their actions. The IDF will continue to use all legal means in order to strike at terrorists, their dispatchers, and those who assist them.
