IDF forces demolished tonight in Dura the house of Jamal Mahmad Maslam Rajoub, a Tanzim activist, who perpetrated a shooting and grenade attack near the Narkis Hall in Ashdod on March 10, 2002 in which an Israeli civilian was injured. Additionally, Jamal was among the perpetrators of a shooting attack against IDF forces near Dura on August 28, 2001.

Demolishing the houses of terrorists is a message to those responsible for suicide attacks and suicide terrorists, that there is a price to be paid for their actions and the actions of all those engaged in hostile activity. The IDF will continue to utilize all legal means available to strike at terrorists, their handlers and all those who assist them.
