Bulk00023OCCUPIED JERUSALEM (PNIC):-Israeli media reported Sunday that Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit is considering a bill to expand the policy of demolishing homes of Palestinians involved in attacks against settlers and soldiers without exceptions.

Makor Rishon website said that Israel's War Minister Avigdor Lieberman had asked Mandelblit to examine the possibility to demolish the homes of Palestinians who carried out attacks in which Israelis were wounded.

The website added that the Israeli Supreme Court usually allows the demolition of homes of Palestinians involved in fatal attacks only.

Quoting an unnamed Israeli official, Makor Rishon said that Lieberman believes that destroying the homes of Palestinians who carried out attacks is an effective and proven means in the fight against "terrorism", and that there is no difference between an attack that ends in murder and one that ends in a serious injury.

The Israeli occupation forces have demolished hundreds of homes of Palestinians involved in attacks against Israeli soldiers or settlers as a punishment policy to deter those planning attacks.
