High Court hears petition against razing home of Otniel terrorist

The High Court of Justice on Sunday heard a petition to block the destruction of the family home of a 16-year-old minor who allegedly murdered Dafna Meir in Otniel in the South Hebron Hills on January 17.

Though dramatic, the hearing was not the first time when parents and other adult family members faced their home being demolished because of the actions of a minor. A Justice Ministry spokesman noted the precedent exists for flattening a family’s home when teenagers are involved in terrorism.
