Israeli forces demolished early on Monday the home of a Palestinian who stabbed a teenage Israeli girl to death in June.
The military said that the home of Mohammed Tra'ayra, in the West Bank town of Bani Na'im near Hebron, was razed under the instructions of Israel's political leadership.
Tra'ayra stabbed 13-year-old Hallel Yaffa Ariel to death in her sleep in the nearby settlement of Kiryat Arba in late June. Tra'ayra was killed at the scene by a security guard responding to the attack.
Ariel, a duel Israeli-American citizen, was the youngest victim in the latest wave of attacks in Israel.
