A Palestinian was killed in clashes with IDF troops in the village of Sa’ir near Hebron in the southern West Bank, according to Palestinian media reports.

Israeli soldiers were in the town to map the family home of a 16-year-old Palestinian who carried out a stabbing attack near the Herod’s Gate entrance to Jerusalem’s Old City on Monday, killing Border Police officer Rose Elisheva Lubin and wounding another border cop.

Mapping is the first step in the process taken by Israeli authorities to carry out the controversial practice of home demolitions. Jerusalem insists that the policy helps deter future attacks, but human rights groups and the US decry the policy as collective punishment.
