As part of the ongoing war against terror and its infrastructure, IDF forces demolished last night (August 14, 2003), the house of Islam Yussuf Kapishi in the Nablus Askar refugee camp.

Kapishi, a Hamas operative, carried out the August 12, 2003, suicide bombing at the entrance to Ariel that killed one Israeli civilian and wounded three others.

Demolishing the houses of terrorists sends a message to suicide bombers and their partners 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 handlers, and all those who assist them.
