The Israeli Supreme Court on Tuesday approved an Israeli military decision to demolish the family home of a Palestinian suspected of being involved in anti-occupation attack last October.
The family of Palestinian prisoner Amjad Aliwi said that their son was charged of being affiliated with a Hamas armed cell allegedly responsible for an anti-occupation attack that left two Israeli soldiers dead.
The Israeli court refused all the appeals filed by the family against the demolition order.
The demolition could happen at any minute, after the court refused to allow the family to present any further appeals, the family added.
Israeli authorities imposed punitive home demolitions in an effort to “deter” attacks carried out by Palestinian individuals in the wake of the outbreak of Jerusalem Intifada that has swept across occupied Jerusalem the West Bank since October.
Israeli rights group B’Tselem has, meanwhile, condemned the practice as “court-sanctioned revenge” carried out on family members who have not committed crimes, amounting to collective punishment and illegal under the international law.
