Israeli forces stormed the house of slain Palestinian, Mohannad Al-Halabi, and arrested his brother on Monday morning in Ramallah.

Local sources said the Israeli forces raided the house, arrested Halabi’s brother, assaulted his family, and threatened to kill them.

This is the not the first time that IDF soldiers have raided the house. Earlier this year, the house was stormed searched and damaged.

Muhannad al-Halabi, 19, was shot dead by Israeli forces on October 3, 2015 after he killed two Israelis and injured two more in occupied East Jerusalem’s Old City. This was the first stabbing attack to take place in a wave of unrest that swept the occupied Palestinian territory, and has left 221 Palestinians dead since.
