Israeli settler family to file lawsuit seizing property of Palestinian prisoner

Montaser Shalabi is being held in Israel after being accused of the attack that injured a settler and killed another.

Jerusalem24 – The Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth reported on Sunday that the family of the settler who was killed about two months ago at the Za’tara checkpoint, south of Nablus, in a shooting attack, is preparing to file a civil lawsuit in Israel and the United States to seize the property of the prisoner Montaser Shalabi, who is accused of carrying out the attack.

According to the website, the settler’s family considers the demolishing of the house insufficient.

According to the website, the lawsuit aims to confiscate the land on which the house was on before its demolition, and to confiscate the rest of the property.

The site pointed out that this step is complicated and requires the Israeli and American courts to express their opinion on it, and to communicate with the Palestinian Authority, if necessary, regarding the land.

Information will be collected on the assets and properties of Shalabi in the West Bank and the United States.

The family of the injured settler in the operation will participate with the family of the dead man in the steps that will be taken.

Last weekend, the Israeli forces demolished the Shalabi family’s home in Turmusaya through explosives, and the US Embassy in Jerusalem issued a statement expressing its rejection of this measure.
