IDF forces demolished overnight (April 30, 2003) in Beit Sira, west of Ramallah, the house of Hitam Al-Mutfak Halil Hamdan, who carried out the shooting attack on road 443 on August 25, 2001, that killed three civilians.

In addition, Hamdan carried out a shooting attack south of the Ramot neighborhood in Jerusalem on September 15, 2001, killing one civilian and moderately wounding another.

The demolition of terrorists’ houses sends a message to suicide bombers and their accomplices that their actions have a price that will be paid by all those involved in hostile terrorist activity.

The IDF will continue to use all available legal means to strike at terrorists, their dispatchers, and all those who assist them.
