Israel to Demolish House of Deceased Fighter

Israeli Troops Threaten to Demolish House of Deceased Fighter

During last night's invasion of Nablus at 4.30 am, Israeli troops took over the house of Abu Raid, the father of the deceased Palestinian fighter Raid Al Khalili, and told him that the house would be demolished. Raid died during clashes with the Israeli military Friday when a bullet was accidentally fired from his own gun.

While in the house the soldiers deployed explosives, vandalizing the house by breaking doors, windows, the bathroom and kitchen, and breaking the furniture.

During the raid the military arrested ten young men, closely related to the deceased Raid Al Khalili, including a brother and his blind cousin.

The military left the area at around 11 am. It is still unclear whether the house is still slated for demolition or if this is just a threat by the Israeli soldiers present.
