Israeli forces have demolished the homes of two Palestinians who carried out fatal attacks on Israelis last year.


The houses of Ghassan Abu Jamal and Mohammed Jaabis were both demolished early Tuesday morning in occupied East Jerusalem.


Abu Jamal, along with his cousin Uday Abu Jamal, attacked a synagogue in Jerusalem on Nov. 17 2014, killing four rabbis along with a Druze policeman. The two cousins were shot dead on the scene.


Mohammed Jaabis drove a bulldozer into a bus on Aug. 4 2014, killing one Israeli. Jaabis was also fatally shot by police.


A room has also been cordoned off in the house of Muataz Hijazi, 32, who shot and injured Israeli activist Yehuda Glick in Oct. 2014.


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has requested that Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked develop a mechanism to shorten the legal process involved in demolishing the homes of those who carry out violent attacks in Israel, Haaretz reports.


The Times of Israel reports that Netanyahu has stated, “we are not prepared to give immunity to anybody, not to any rioter… or any terrorist, anywhere, and therefore there are no limits on the activities of the security forces.”


After a meeting with the Ministry of Defense on Sunday, Netanyahu announced “a series of additional steps in order to prevent terror and to deter and punish the attackers,” including the use of administrative detention and the demolition of the perpetrators’ homes.
