Israel premier: Destroy synagogue attackers' homes

The Associated Press

JERUSALEM (AP) Israel's prime minister has ordered authorities to destroy the homes of the attackers who killed four people in a Jerusalem synagogue.

Benjamin Netanyahu also ordered the demolition of homes of Palestinians involved in other recent deadly attacks.

Netanyahu announced the directive Tuesday after a meeting with top security officials. He did not say when the demolitions would take place.

Israel halted its much-maligned practice of home demolitions in 2005 after officials determined it was not an effective deterrent. But they have had a change of heart recently and begun to renew the tactic in certain cases.

Netanyahu was scheduled to hold a televised news conference later Tuesday.
