The residence in question, in the town of Silat al-Harithiya, belonged to Mahmoud Jaradat, one of the terrorists responsible for the murder of yeshiva student Yehuda Dimentman near Homesh in December.

Palestinians hurled stones and explosive devices at Israeli forces, who returned fire, killing one of the rioters, according to Israeli media reports.

Many other Palestinians were also injured in the incident, some critically, according to the reports.

The Israeli casualty was not injured by rioters but rather by falling debris from the demolition.
