Palestinian, Israeli hurt in West Bank clash
Clashes near the West Bank village of Qusra left a Palestinian and an Israeli wounded.
Friday’s clashes reportedly began after Israeli settlers set out for a hike. A Palestinian was reportedly seriously wounded after being shot, while the Israeli settler was lightly wounded after being stabbed, according to Haaretz.
The Israeli army sent forces to disperse the crowds, The Jerusalem Post reported.
The clashes come a week and a half after extremist settlers threw burning tires into a mosque in Qusra, which is south of Nablus. Many believe the September 5 arson attempt was a so-called “price tag” attack, since it came several hours after Israeli police demolished several illegal structures in a settlement outpost.
