STORYLINE:
Israeli forces demolished two houses early Wednesday in the West Bank town of Bani Naim, east of Hebron.

Israeli army forces stormed the town to demolish the family houses of two prisoners, Mohamed Salem and Mahmoud Ziadat.

Salem’s son Ahmed is also in prison and along with Mahmoud Ziadat is suspected to be one of two people involved in an attack carried out in Tel Aviv in January.

Mahmoud’s brother Ayman said Israeli soldiers stormed the town close to midnight to carry out the demolitions.

In January, Israeli police said at least two Palestinians carried out an attack north of Tel Aviv, ramming cars into pedestrians and stabbing people.

One woman was killed and 12 people were wounded.

The police said at the time that they arrested two Palestinian suspects from the West Bank.

They said the suspects stole three different cars and attempted to run down pedestrians and that the two suspects had been working in Israel without permits.

The Hamas militant group that rules the Gaza Strip praised the attack at the time but neither it nor other armed groups claimed responsibility.
