Israeli forces demolished the home of Abdel Rahman al-Shaludi, the Palestinian responsible for the late October Jerusalem light rail attack that killed two, overnight on Tuesday in Silwan, East Jerusalem.

According to the IDF, the operation was carried out in collaboration with units from Israel Police and the border police.

Al-Shaludi's family received an order last week from the Israeli military Home Front Command to seal off the fourth floor of their home in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan within 48 hours or present the commander of the Home Front Command with their objections.

This is the first planned demolition of a terrorist homes since the August demolitions that followed the kidnapping and killing of three Israeli teens hitchhiking in the West Bank.

Two people were killed and five were wounded on October 22 when Al-Shaludi drove his car into a light rail station near Ammunition Hill in Jerusalem, running over passengers disembarking from the train. He stopped after hitting a pole a few hundred meters down and then attempted to flee on foot, when he was shot, arrested and hospitalized before succumbing to his wounds.

Al-Shaludi’s family members continued to insist after the incident that he lost control of his car and did not deliberately drive it into passengers.
