(Israel Hayom/Exclusive to The Israel Defense Forces said Monday that its Combat Engineering Corps special forces, in conjunction with engineering and border police teams in Judea and Samaria, destroyed overnight the home of Husam al-Qawasmeh, who led the terrorist cell responsible for the kidnapping and murder of Israeli teens Naftali Frenkel, Gilad Shaar, and Eyal Yifrach in June.

In the same operation, Israeli forces also destroyed the homes of the two murderers who carried out the kidnapping, demolishing the home of Omar Abu Aysha and sealing off the entrances to Marwan Qawasmeh’s home.

Destroying the homes of terrorists serves as powerful deterrence, reminding would-be terrorists that there is a price to be paid for their crimes, the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said.
