The Demolition of a Terrorist's House

The Israeli military says its forces have demolished the home of a Palestinian who killed two Israelis in a shooting and stabbing spree last month.

Israel says 19-year-old Omar Abu Layla stabbed a soldier to death and shot another dead while wounding others near the settlement of Ariel in March. He was killed by Israeli troops after a massive three-day manhunt.

Israel often demolishes homes of alleged Palestinian assailants or their families, saying it deters future attacks. Rights groups say the demolitions amount to collective punishment.
