Michal Salomon, whose husband, sister-in-law and father-in-law were stabbed to death on July 21 at their home in Neve Tzuf, called Wednesday for the death penalty, or at least bare minimum prison conditions, for terrorists.
Responding to reports that security forces had demolished part of the home (see video below) of 19-year-old Omer al-Abed, the Palestinian terrorist from the village of Kobar who committed the attack, Salomon said “they can rebuild their house, but my home has been destroyed forever. We need capital punishment – or at least radically more difficult prison conditions and prevent them from receiving anything above the bare minimum – so these terrorists can not rebuild their homes.
“They murdered people, and they must be punished,” Salomon Salomon told the Israel Broadcast Corporation (Kan). “They don’t deserve a pension that we pay for.”
Abed stabbed Elad Salomon, together with his father Yossi and sister Chaya in their home in Neve Tzuf on July 21 as the family prepared to sit down for their Shabbos meal.
Palestinian media reported that clashes erupted in the village, located near Ramallah, when forces arrived to carry out the demolition. Abed’s parents, two brothers and an uncle were detained after military prosecutors said on Tuesday that they would press charges against the family for failing to prevent a crime.
