JERUSALEM (AP) -- Israel's military says its forces demolished the home of a Palestinian involved in the ambush of a family car in the West Bank that killed an Israeli and wounded his wife and two of their children.

It said the residence in Dura near the West Bank city of Hebron Bank was razed Tuesday. It said the man "assisted in the planning and execution" of the July 1 attack that killed Miki Mark, a 48-year-old father of 10 children.

The shooting was one of a wave of attacks since September 2015. Palestinians have killed 34 Israelis and two visiting Americans. Some 208 Palestinians died in that time, most identified as attackers by Israel.

Israel says house demolitions are an effective deterrent against attacks. Critics counter the tactic amounts to collective punishment.
