Israel: murder suspect's home demolished
Israel demolished the home of a Palestinian, Ziad Awad, arrested this month on charges of shooting dead an Israeli off-duty police officer in April, the army said.
After the demolition, Awad’s wife vowed to reinstate the building.
“I promise that this house will be rebuilt in one month. My husband and son had the money to build the house, I will get the money and build the house,” said Hanan Awad.
HaMoked Centre, an Israeli rights group, said the ruling violated international and Israeli law “that a person must not be punished for the acts of others”.
The group argued that the main victims were the occupants of the house, rather then the alleged perpetrator.
