The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) and the Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories' civil administration issued a decree Monday night announcing plans to demolish the West Bank home of 17-year-old Palestinian Mohammad Tarayrah.

Tarayrah allegedly stabbed Israeli teenager Hallel Yaffa Ariel in her sleep in the illegal settlement of Kiryat on June 30. Ariel later died from her injuries. 

Tarayrah, who hailed from the village of Bnei Na'im was shot dead at the scene in Kiryat last week. 

Also overnight, IDF forces and Border Police officers arrested seven "wanted" Palestinians in raid in the West Bank.
