The Israeli military on Tuesday demolished the homes of two Palestinians who were behind the shooting in the settlement of Ariel in back in April which left one Israeli dead.
The attackers, Yusuf 'Assi and Yahya Ma'ari, killed Vyacheslav Golov while he was guarding the entry to the West Bank settlement.
The Supreme Court rejected the family members of the attackers' pleas last month, permitting the demolition of their homes at the village of Qarawat Bani Hassan south of Nablus.
Hundreds of Palestinians arrived at the site this morning and threw rocks, blazing tires, fireworks and explosives at the troops operating there, the army claimed.
Vyacheslav Golev, 23, was shot and killed at the entrance to Ariel while shielding his fiancée, Victoria Fligelman, who was stationed at the post with him.

The militant arm of Fatah, the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, claimed responsibility for the assault. The IDF and counter-terror units arrested Assi and Ma'ari the day after the attack.
On Monday night, the IDF, Shin Bet, and Border Police operated in a number of West Bank locations. Ten people were detained by the authorities, some of them were wanted for alleged terrorist activity.
Israel routinely demolishes the homes of slain or captured Palestinian assailants who killed Israelis, saying it serves as a deterrent against future attackers. The Palestinians and rights groups say the practice amounts to collective punishment.
Israeli troops have been carrying out near-daily raids across the West Bank for months in the aftermath of a string of deadly attacks in which Palestinian attackers killed 19 Israelis.
The military has faced resistance during some of those raids, which in several instances have turned deadly. More than 60 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces since the start of the year, according to an official Palestinian tally.
