IOF demolish homes of two Palestinian prisoners in West Bank
Israeli brutality in Palestine continues, demolishing this time the homes of Palestinians while behind bars.
The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) demolished, at dawn Monday, the homes of the two Palestinian prisoners, Sobhi Sobeihat and Asaad Al-Rifai, in the northern West Bank.
The IOF stormed the town of Rummana, west of Jenin in the northern West Bank, and proceeded to demolish the homes of Sobeihat and Al-Rifai on charges of carrying out an alleged stabbing operation in the "Elad" settlement, which led to the killing of three Israeli settlers and the injury of four others.
Standing on the ruins of his house that was demolished by the IOF, the father of prisoner Asaad Al-Rifai underlined that the Israeli occupation "will not break our determination."

An eyewitness told Sputnik that large forces of the Israeli occupation patrols were deployed in the village of Rummana, adding that more than 50 IOF vehicles stormed the village and spread in its neighborhoods.
The eyewitness said the IOF distributed a statement asking the people of Rummana not to leave their homes.
In early May, the IOF arrested Assad Al-Rifai, 19, and Sobhi Sobeihat, 20, the Palestinian pair accused of carrying out the "Elad" operation in eastern "Tel Aviv", Israeli media reported.
The arrest took place following an extensive manhunt that dragged on for three days, and the pair was arrested 500 meters away from the site of the operation, Israeli media revealed.
