Demolishing the Entire House of An Individual Terrorist in Jerusalem Is Totally Wrong and Counterproductive.

Needless to say that Hamas and Islamic Jihad are two terrorist groups. Moreover, this is a logical and reasonable response that every terrorist should be held responsible and accountable for his/her brutal and inhuman act in a legally binding manner.

But demolishing the entire house of an individual terrorist as a sort of punishment is totally wrong and counterproductive; in addition, it does not change anything at all with regards to the attitude, tactic and strategy of the terrorist groups in that region. Such a move would be much more beneficial for the terrorist groups in different terms, instead of Israeli authority. Thus, it would be wise for Israel to remove this type of punishment from its counter terrorism policy against individual terrorists.
