Israel's occupation forces overnight destroyed the home of a Palestinian accused of involvement in a shooting attack in the occupied West Bank that led to the death of a rabbi, it claimed Tuesday.
The army said it destroyed the home of Mohammed Abed Almajid Mohammed El-Amaira, 38, in Dura, southwest of the West Bank city of Hebron.
Amaira, a member of the Palestinian Authority security services, was arrested several weeks ago, accused of having helped plan and carry out the attack on July 1, when gunmen opened fire on a car near Hebron.
The car crashed, killing rabbi Michael Mark, who led a religious school in the Israeli settlement of Otniel, and wounding two family members, according to the army.
Amaira is accused of having acted as the driver in the attack.
Another Palestinian accused over the attack, Mohamed Fakih, 29, was killed during a raid in July that saw Israeli forces fire anti-tank missiles at a house in the West Bank village of Surif.
Israel regularly destroys the homes of Palestinians.
Palestinians and human rights activists say the policy amounts to collective punishment, forcing families to suffer for the acts of others.
