Israel premier Netanyahu orders Jerusalem “terrorists” homes razed

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has ordered officials to demolish the homes of Palestinians in east Jerusalem who carried out attacks on Israelis, an official told AFP Friday.

“Last night, at a consultation with security officials a number of possible measures to restore calm in Jerusalem were discussed,” the official said on condition of anonymity.

“Among those discussed was the sealing or demolition of terrorists’ homes, this was approved,” the official said, adding that implementation of the plan required formal justice ministry approval.
