'Collective punishment' used against Jerusalem attacker's family

(MENAFN) An Israeli human rights organization has accused authorities of adopting a series of punitive measures against the family of the Palestinian behind a recent attack in Jerusalem.

Fadi al-Qunbar on Sunday rammed a lorry into a group of Israeli soldiers near the Old City, killing four soldiers and injuring 15 others.

A press release from B'tselem said that on 10 January, 'inspectors taped warning notices to the doors of some forty homes, stating that they were built without permits and that administrative proceedings to demolish them had been instigated'.

'These structures all belong to the extended al-Qunbar family or are located near the home of the perpetrator of the ramming attack'.
