After an invasion lasting for about twelve hours, Israeli soldiers detonated, at dawn Thursday, a Palestinian home in Ya’bad town, southwest of the northern West Bank city of Jenin.
Media sources said more than thirty armored military vehicles invaded the town after surrounding and isolating it.
They added that the soldiers invaded and occupied the rooftops of many homes and deployed sharpshooters before Israeli Combat Engineering Corps personnel started wiring the family home of Dia’ Hamarsha, 27.
The soldiers forced the family out of the property and ordered all Palestinians in surrounding homes to leave the area, and demolished parts of Hamarsha’s home before detonating it.

The explosions also caused damage to a few surrounding homes before the army started firing live rounds at Palestinians who protested the attack.
Protests also took place after the army demolished the home, and the soldiers fired many live rounds at the Palestinians before withdrawing from the town.

Dia’ Hamarsha was killed by an Israeli police officer, on March 30, 2022, after allegedly shooting to death five Israelis in a suburb of Tel Aviv.
The home demolition policy is an illegal act of collective punishment that violates International Law, various international resolutions, and the Fourth Geneva Convention, to which Israel is a signatory and a constant violator.
Shortly after the army invaded the town to demolish the home, the soldiers killed a young man, Bilal Awad Kabaha, 24, and injured six others, including three who suffered serious wounds.
