Israeli forces demolished on Monday the home of a Palestinian teen who was killed in June in the latest instance of Israel’s atrocities against Palestinians.
A 17-year-old teenager, Muhammad Nasser Tarayra, who was a native of the southern occupied West Bank town of Bani Naim was killed by a security guard on June 30, 2016 in the illegal Israeli settlement of Kiryat Arba.
“Early on Monday, Israeli forces, escorted by 30 military vehicles and a bulldozer, hit Bani Naim, east of the city of Hebron. They forced Tarayra’s family out of their home at gunpoint,” according to witnesses.
Israeli troops then planted explosives inside the two-story building and blow it up.
A footage was taken after the incident, showing the aftermath of the explosion, with the inside of the home, and some parts of the outside, visibly damaged.
“Israeli forces detained many of neighboring residents during the attack, releasing them only after the demolition was completed,” eyewitnesses said.
Clashes erupted during the excursion in Bani Naim, with Israeli troops firing sound bombs and tear gasses at the residents, causing multiple cases of suffocation among Palestinians.
Since the outset of a new wave of unrest across the occupied Palestinian territory in October, at least 212 Palestinian have been killed and many more injured by Israeli forces. 32 Israelis have also been killed since the beginning of the clashes.
