The Israeli High court has today approved orders to raze the family homes of the perpetrators of a shooting attack at Al-Aqsa Mosque last month, according to the Jerusalem Post.


The judges unanimously rejected the petition of the Palestinian families to stop the demolition of their homes in Umm Al-Fahm, despite the three youths who committed the attack having been killed in the shootout.


The families condemned the decision, stating that the court was oppressing innocent people.


Israel has long implemented a policy of collective punishment against Palestinians, where such demolitions are intended as a deterrent to future attacks. In May the Palestinian Authority’s Wall and Settlement Resistance Committee estimated that Israeli occupying forces have destroyed over 270 Palestinian properties since the start of 2017.
