Israel halted its policy of demolishing the homes of Palestinian terrorists. Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz ordered the halt Thursday on the recommendation of an internal review. “The Israel Defense Forces has in the past exercised its legal authority to demolish terrorists’ houses,” the military said in a statement. “The necessity of this tactic as part of the fight against terror is often re-evaluated.”
