JERUSALEM – Israeli police say authorities have demolished the home of a Palestinian who killed two officers and wounded several others in an attack last year.
Spokeswoman Luba Samri said security was out in force Wednesday in Shuafat, a Palestinian neighborhood in east Jerusalem.
Police have said Ibrahim Al-Akri drove his minivan into a train platform then attacked bystanders. He was shot dead at the scene.
Israel is currently struggling to contain near-daily Palestinian attacks that have been ongoing for over two months with no signs of relenting. Palestinians have killed 19 Israelis in stabbings, shootings and vehicular attacks. At least 100 Palestinians were killed, including 65 said by Israel to be attackers.
Last month, Israel renewed a policy of demolishing homes of Palestinians accused of carrying out deadly attacks.
