Israeli Prime Minster Benjamin Netanyahu recently raised the possibility of canceling the residency status of some of the 80, 000 Palestinians who reside in East Jerusalem neighborhoods beyond the controversial separation barrier, sources in the prime minister’s bureau have said.

The report came amid a wave of terror attacks against Israelis and clashes between Israeli forces and Palestinians in East Jerusalem and the West Bank. In the latest incident, a Palestinian man stabbed and seriously wounded an Israeli in the southern West Bank before being shot dead, the army said on Monday morning.

“The assailant stabbed the Israeli in the neck, wounding him severely. The attacker was shot on site, resulting in his death. The wounded victim is now being evacuated for emergency medical care, ” a statement from the military read.

Netanyahu’s remarks were made during a cabinet meeting that took place two weeks ago about how to deal the escalating violence in the city and preventing East Jerusalem residents from carrying out attacks on Israelis.

According to the sources, the prime minister said that Israel should consider revoking the resident status of Palestinians in East Jerusalem, and called for a separate meeting to discuss the matter.
