JERUSALEM - The Israeli military says it has demolished the West Bank home of a Palestinian who shot and killed three Israeli security men in September.

The military says Israeli forces knocked down the family home of Nimr Jamal on Wednesday.

Jamal killed the three Israelis and critically wounded a fourth outside the West Bank settlement of Har Adar before he was shot dead. He came from the nearby village of Beit Surik and had worked for years in the settlement, where he was known as a conscientious worker who earned the trust of local residents.

Israel demolishes the homes of Palestinian attackers as a deterrent measure, but Palestinians consider the policy collective punishment. Israel has also cancelled the entry permits of several of Jamal's relatives in response to the attack.
