i24News – Israeli forces overnight mapped for demolition the homes of the terrorist who carried out November’s double bombing attack in Jerusalem that killed two and wounded at least 22 others.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said in a statement that the homes of Eslam Froukh in Ramallah and Kafr ‘Aqab were examined for possible destruction. The Shin Bet domestic intelligence service and Israel Police last month announced that the 26-year-old Israeli Arab was arrested in November. The mechanical engineer is affiliated with the Islamic State group.

During Monday night’s operation, IDF troops encountered violent rioters who threw stones and Molotov cocktails at them before they deployed disbursement measures. No casualties to Israeli forces were reported.

The Jerusalem attacks on November 23 left two Israelis dead – Arye Schepoek, 16, and Tadasa Tashume Ben Ma’ada, 50.
