Last night (November 27, 2003), IDF forces demolished the house of Walid Mahmoud Haj’azi Abido. Abido, an Islamic Jihad operative, carried out the June 9, 2003, shooting attack against IDF forces in the Hebron Casbah, killing IDF soldier, Staff Seargent Matan Gadri.

The demolition of the houses of terrorists sends a message that anyone who participates in terrorist activity will pay a price for their actions. The IDF will continue to use all legal means in order to strike at terrorists, their dispatchers, and those who assist them.
