Eight Palestinian terror suspects were arrested in an overnight raid in Samaria, and the IDF announced the demolition of the homes of seven Palestinian terrorists.

IDF and police forces arrested eight wanted Palestinians suspected of terrorism overnight Thursday in Samaria, and on Friday morning, the IDF announced it will destroy the homes of seven terrorists who committed some of the most lethal attacks in the current wave of violence. They include the murderers of Israeli mother Dafna Meir in Otniel, who was slaughtered in the presence of her daughter; Genadi Kaufman, a gardener in Hebron; and Eitam and Naama Henkin, who were killed in the family car in Samaria while their four children looked on.

Indeed, the father of Meir’s murderer declared that he was proud of his son for committing the act of terror.

“One of the eight detainees is suspected of involvement in terrorism, mass disturbances and violence toward civilians and security forces, the army said. At least seven are said to be members of the Hamas terrorist organization,” Times of Israel reported.

“In the Nablus area, troops arrested four suspected Hamas operatives, while three more were arrested in the Ramallah region. All eight detainees were transferred for interrogation by security forces,” the Times report added.
