JNS.org Israeli Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch on Friday visited the bereaved parents and grandfather of Chaya Zissel Braun, the 3-month-old baby girl who was killed last week in a hit-and-run Arab terrorist attack on Jerusalem’s Ammunition Hill light rail station.

“I promise you I will take steps to punish the family of the murderer, even by shutting and [eventually] demolishing his home,” Aharonovitch said, Israel Hayom reported.

Sources close to Aharonovitch said that he would prefer to issue an order to demolish the home, but decided to seal off the building since that was a step that could be taken immediately, as opposed to issuing a demolition order that could encounter legal difficulties because the terrorist is a resident of eastern Jerusalem.
