Jerusalem - The Israeli military says forces have sealed the home of a Palestinian charged with killing an Israeli when he threw rocks at the man’s car in Jerusalem.

Sixty-four-year-old Alexander Levlovitz was driving home from a holiday meal last year when his car was struck and crashed. He was the first Israeli to be killed in the current seven month-long wave of Israeli-Palestinian violence.

Palestinian attacks have killed 28 Israelis and two Americans. Some 188 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire, most of whom Israel says were attackers. The rest were killed in clashes.

The military says the east Jerusalem home of the rock thrower, Abed Dawiat, was sealed Monday.

Israel says home-sealing and demolitions are meant to deter attacks. Critics say the tactic amounts to collective punishment.‎

Why don't they call in a team of Hamas tunnel diggers and have them break up the cement?

As if they don't just unseal it as soon as the soldiers leave... "Sealing" homes is a Stupid PR waste of time. If they wanted to do it right they would just have a D9 do a few laps over the building.
