Israel razes home of suspected Palestinian shooter

Sources told Ma'an that Israeli police forces escorted bulldozers into the al-Ashqariya neighborhood of the town, surrounded and demolished a house belonging to a local identified as Imran al-Masri.

In March, Israel demolished the home of Saleh's brother Assem Barghouti a few weeks after detaining him, saying he is suspected of killing two Israeli soldiers near Ramallah on December 13, 2018, a day after the killing of Saleh.

Palestinians inspect the house of Palestinian Arafat Irfaiyye, after it was demolished by a Israeli army in Hebron, West Bank on April 19, 2019.

Israeli occupation forces demolished, on Wednesday at daybreak, the house of slain Palestinian Saleh al-Barghouthi, in the village of Kobar, northwest of the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah.

Barghouthi was shot dead by Israeli forces in an Israeli raid in the occupied territory previous year.

Chicago prosecutor Kim Foxx's staff members quit after Jussie Smollett case
Mark Rotert is retiring after about two years leading the Conviction Integrity Unit, which reviews alleged wrongful convictions. Some 70 people had convictions vacated or prosecutions abandoned by the office after CIU reviews exposed flaws in the cases.

Some clashes broke out between Palestinian residents and Israeli forces during the operation, AFP journalists reported.

Israel routinely demolishes the homes of Palestinians accused of attacks on Israelis as part of a policy it says discourages future violence.

Israel's top court usually rejects Palestinians' appeals against the demolition of their homes.

Israel has come under harsh condemnation over the past several years for its response to attacks committed by Palestinians on Israelis, which rights groups have said amounted to "collective punishment" on family members and entire communities in a clear violation of global law.
