  1. Israel destroys home of Palestinian who killed officer

    JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel’s military says forces have demolished the home of a Palestinian involved in attacks that killed a young female police officer in Jerusalem.

    It said troops early Thursday destroyed the West Bank residence of one of the attackers.

    Palestinians armed with an automatic weapon and knives assaulted officers on duty near Jerusalem’s Old City in June. Staff Sgt. Maj. Hadas Malka, 23, was rushing to respond to the initial attack when a Palestinian assaulted her with a knife.

    Israel says the demolitions are an effective deterrent. Critics say it amounts to collective punishment.

    Since 2015, Palestinians have killed 48 Israelis, two visiting Americans and a British tourist in stabbings, shooting and car-ramming attacks. In that time, Israeli forces killed over 255 Palestinians, most said by Israel to be attackers.

  2. The Latest: Dunford: US-SKorea drills not being negotiated

    BEIJING (AP) — The Latest on the North Korea crisis (all times local):

    4:25 p.m.

    The top U.S. military officer says the U.S. will not negotiate away its joint exercises with South Korea as long as the threat of an attack by North Korea exists.

    Marine Corps Gen. Joseph Dunford told reporters Thursday that he’s advised the U.S. leadership not to dial back on the exercises with South Korea.

    Dunford says: “As long as the threat in North Korea exists we need to maintain a high state of readiness to respond to that threat.”

    North Korea claims the annual drills, scheduled for later this month, are a prelude for an invasion.

    Washington and Seoul say the exercises are defensive in nature and crucial to deterring North Korean aggression.
