According to Israeli authorities, Abu Zeid, currently in an Israeli prison, supplied a gun and transported the three Palestinians who killed 19-year-old Hadar Cohen in a shooting and stabbing attack. The attackers were killed at the scene and their homes in the town of Kabatiya, in the Jenin area, were demolished some two months later.
A military convoy attempting to demolish Abu Zeid's home was attacked by Palestinians armed with pipe bombs and improvised weapons. The troops responded to the attack, shooting three Palestinians, according to Israeli army claims.
Officials in Ramallah reported six Palestinians wounded, including two by live fire and four by rubber bullets.
Israel routinely destroys the homes of Palestinians, in what Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu considers a deterrent to violence. The demolitions receive routine condemnation from various rights groups, as they harm families, deprive children of shelter, and cause innocents to pay for the crimes of others.
The UN humanitarian aid coordinator for the occupied Palestinian territory demanded earlier that Israeli authorities cease destroying the homes of Palestinian families.
Since October, around 10 Palestinians from Qabatiya have been killed while attacking Israelis.
Violence in Israel and the state of Palestine since October 2015 has killed at least 215 Palestinians, 34 Israelis, two Americans, an Eritrean and a Sudanese.
