No Comments

The government voted Sunday in favor of sealing off the home of a 13-year-old Palestinian from East Jerusalem who wounded two in a terror shooting on Saturday.

Sunday’s weekly cabinet meeting followed a deadly weekend in the capital that saw seven Israelis killed and several others injured in two separate terror attacks.

Police said earlier Sunday that they had sealed the home of Alqam Khayri, the terrorist who carried out the attack on Friday that killed seven and injured three in East Jerusalem’s Neve Yaakov neighborhood.

The second attacker, 13-year-old Muhammad Aliwat, also from East Jerusalem, seriously injured two people the next day, before being shot and wounded by armed members of the group he attacked.

The attorney general’s representatives present at the meeting raised problems with sealing the 13-year-old’s home, as current Israeli policy states that a terrorist’s home will only be sealed or demolished if the attack included fatalities, which in this case, it did not.
