The Supreme Court ratifies the decision to demolish the house of Martyr Fadi Qunbar
February 23, 2017

The Israeli Supreme Court ratified on Thursday the decision to demolish the house of Martyr Fadi Qunbar in the village of Jabal Al-Mukabber south of Jerusalem. Qunbar carried out a run-over attack in “Armon Hanatsiv” settlement that is established on the lands of Jabal Al-Mukabber and killed four Israeli soldiers and injured several others.

The Supreme Court’s decision came as a response to the appeal submitted by the Martyr’s family through “Hamoked” Center for the defense of individuals.

Demolishing the house of Martyr Qunbar is part of the sanctions imposed on the Martyr’s family who passed away nearly a month and a half ago. The Israeli Minister of Interior, Aryeh Dar’ee, decided to suspend the residency of the Martyr’s mother and 12 other relatives. The Israeli authorities also prohibited the family from establishing a funeral tent for the Martyrs and took it down not to mention the multiple arrests against family members including the Martyr’s father, brothers, sister and cousins.

The occupation authorities continue to detain the body of Martyr Qunbar in their freezers for the second consecutive month.
