Israeli security forces demolished the house of the Palestinian terrorist who murdered an Israeli in a terrorist stabbing attack. Israeli army troops along with border police entered the Palestinian town of Kobar in the West Bank (Judea and Samaria) to the house belonging to the family of Mohammad Tareq Yousef.

On July 26, Yousef infiltrated the town of Adam, about 18 kilometers from Kobar, and attacked two residents before being neutralized by a third person. Yousef killed Yotam Ovadia, 31, with several stabs to the upper part of his body. Yotam was the father of a 2-year-old boy and a 7-month-old baby.

The demolition took place after Yousef’s family received a notification two weeks ago.

The Minister of Defense of Israel, Avigdor Liberman, posted his comments on his Twitter after the demolition of the house: “Tonight the circle has closed. We will continue fighting terrorism with an iron hand, we will continue to build in Adam and in every place where they seek to attack our citizens.”
