Supreme Court approves destruction of terrorists’ houses

Israel's Supreme Court on Thursday turned down an appeal against the destruction of the homes of terrorists who murdered Israelis, saying eight of the nine homes in question could be destroyed. The homes belong to the families of the terrorists who murdered Na'ama and Eitan Vaknin, Malachi Rozenfeld and Danny Gonen. The court ruled that the house of one of the terrorists who murdered Rozenfeld should not be destroyed because of the weak link between the terrorist and the other residents of the building. The judges criticized the state over its long delays in carrying out the orders for destruction of the houses, compared to the very short amount of time that the court was given because of Prime Minister Netanyahu's push for a quick verdict.
