The Israeli regime demolished the family homes of two Palestinian prisoners in the occupied West Bank, whom it has accused of carrying out a stabbing attack, displacing their residents.

Palestine's official WAFA news agency, citing local sources, reported that Israeli military forces raided Rummana town, northwest of Jenin, early on Monday, and razed down the houses belonging to the inmates Assad Rifai and Subhi Sbeihat, Press TV reported.

The two men have been detained by Israeli forces since May after the regime accused them of being involved in a stabbing attack in the city of Bnei Brak, east of Tel Aviv.

Before razing the houses, Israeli military vehicles cordoned off the houses and Israeli troops were deployed on the roofs of the surrounding buildings.

As a result, seven members of Sbeihat family were left homeless after their two-story house was demolished. Seven members of Rifai family were also displaced after their one floor house was torn down.

Dozens of local residents also suffered breathing problems after the IOF fired teargas bombs during the demolition process.

The Tel Aviv regime regularly destroys the homes of Palestinians it blames for attacks on Israeli settlers, in an act of collective punishment condemned by human rights activists.
