Israel razes home of Arab terrorist who murdered US tourist
Israeli security forces demolished overnight Monday the home of the Arab terrorist who murdered U.S. citizen Taylor Force in a stabbing spree in Yaffo in March.
The demolition of Bashar Masalha’s home in the Arab village of Hajjah near Shechem, was carried out by IDF forces, Border Police and the Civil Administration officials, the military said in a statement.
The terrorist stabbed Force to death and wounded eleven others before he was eliminated near the Yaffo promenade.
Force was a US Army veteran who had done tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. He graduated from West Point Military Academy in 2009 and served as a field artillery officer from 2009 to 2014 at Fort Hood.
The Vanderbilt graduate student was repatriated three days after the attack, following a service at Ben Gurion Airport attended by American-born former MK Dov Lipman, Force’s friend and former West Point Military Academy classmate David Simpkins, and members of the US diplomatic corps and military in Israel.
