On Tuesday dawn, Israeli soldiers invaded Orif town, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, and took measurements of three Palestinian homes to demolish them.

Media sources said many military vehicles, including the Combat Engineering Corps, invaded the town before storming the homes of three Palestinian detainees, Mohammad Ahmad Shehada, Kayed Sabah, and Jibril Safadi, before taking measurements of the properties.

The Israeli army intends to demolish the family homes of the three detainees in an illegal act of collective punishment.

The army claims the detainees planned and participated in a shooting attack leading to the death of four Israeli colonizers.

Two Palestinians, Mohannad Shehada, 26,  and Khaled Mustafa Sabah, 24, carried the shooting before they were killed; four Israeli colonizers were killed.

The Israelis who were killed in the attack were identified as Elisha Antman, 18, from Eli colony; Harel Masoud, 21, from Yad Binyamin; Nachman Shmuel Mordoff, 17, from Ahiya, and Ofer Feierman, 63, from Eli colony.
