Police forces of the Jerusalem district and MGB fighters with the assistance of the IDF force sealed off the family home of the terrorist who carried out the stampede attack in Jerusalem on Friday (Sunday).
The terrorist, Hossein Karaka, did not live in a house in the A-Tor neighborhood, but in a rented house.
The people who live in the sealed house are the terrorist's parents and two brothers, who were arrested by the security forces.
After his death it became known that Karake, a resident of the Issawiya neighborhood, suffered from mental problems, and because he lived in a rented apartment there would be difficulties in sealing and demolishing his house.
Last night, the forces raided his parents' house.

The 31-year-old Karake, who was admitted to a psychiatric institution and was released from it last week, accelerated his car on Friday around 1:00 p.m., and crashed into a bus stop at the entrance to the neighborhood while many passengers were waiting there.
The six-year-old Jacob Israel Plai, his brother Asher Menachem Plai, the eight-year-old, and Shlomo Lederman, the twenty-year-old, were murdered in the attack.
Most of the victims are members of one family who got off a bus at the station shortly before the attack.
A police detective passing by shot at the terrorist and killed him.

After the attack, the Minister of National Security Itamar Ben Gabir, who arrived at the scene, said that he instructed the police to prepare for an operation "to deal with the nests of terrorism in East Jerusalem starting on Sunday", which he called "Protective Wall 2".
A political official said in response to the statements that the decision to launch the "Protective Wall" operation in 2002 was made by a government decision after 131 Israelis were killed in one month, and emphasized that "we do not accept a decision about a protective wall operation from a sidewalk at the scene of an attack."
Ben Gvir last night repeated his statement regarding the launch of the operation to eradicate terrorism and brought up a series of issues that he intends to present to the political-security cabinet.
"We are determined to implement Magen Wall 2 in Jerusalem," tweeted the minister.
"For the information of the parties that are working against me, under the authority of the police, to destroy illegal houses, arrest more than 150 targets and raid the houses, stop the incitement in mosques, arrest taxpayers and much more. The cabinet meeting is important and I will ask for additional things there, but governance is very important and I will make sure that will be".
