Israel dynamites home of suicide bomber

Israeli troops on Sunday dynamited the West Bank family home of a Palestinian suicide bomber who killed 19 people in the northern town of Haifa the previous day, Palestinian security sources said.

A 30-strong column of Israeli tanks and other armoured vehicles launched a pre-dawn raid in the West Bank town of Jenin, where a curfew was imposed on Saturday.

The Israeli forces headed for the home of suicide bomber Hanadi Tayssir Jaradat, a 29-year-old Palestinian lawyer who carried out the attack at a restaurant in Haifa in the name of Islamic Jihad.

Her one-floor family home where eight people lived was dynamited by the troops. There was no word of any casualties.

Meanwhile Israeli troops conducted a house-to-house sweep of the district looking for wanted activists.

Earlier Israeli helicopter gunships launched overnight strikes on Palestinian activist targets in the Gaza Strip, Palestinian security cources said. Those attacks caused only minor injuries.—Sapa-AFP
