    Israel demolishes homes of suspected Palestinian attackers

    JERUSALEM (AP) – The Israeli military yesterday demolished the homes of two Palestinians suspected of killing an Israeli security guard in a West Bank settlement in April.

    Vyacheslav Golev was killed in a shooting at the entrance of a Jewish settlement in the occupied West Bank on April 29. Palestinian group Hamas claimed responsibility for the attack.

    The Israeli military later apprehended two Palestinians suspected of carrying out the attack.

    Yesterday, the army said it demolished their residences in the northern West Bank village of Qarawat Bani Hassan.

    In a statement, the military said forces faced a violent protest, with firebombs and burning tires thrown at the troops.

    Israel routinely demolishes the homes of slain or captured Palestinian assailants who killed Israelis, saying it serves as a deterrent against future attackers.

    The Palestinians and rights groups said the practice amounts to collective punishment.
