The Israeli military has blown up the family home of a Palestinian man, who was killed earlier by its forces over an alleged stabbing attack.

Amateur footage surfaced online on Tuesday, showing Israeli forces detonating the house, located in the occupied West Bank village of Beit Surik.

In a similar move, Tel Aviv’s forces also demolished a Palestinian home in the East Jerusalem al-Quds neighborhood of Issawiya.

Israeli authorities issue punitive demolition orders for the homes of Palestinian families over allegations that their relatives were involved in attacks on Israelis.

The demolitions of Palestinian homes and structures have raised alarm among diplomats and human rights groups over what they regard as the Tel Aviv regime’s continued violation of international law.
