A Palestinian official says Israeli settlers stoned cars and set fire to Palestinian-owned olive trees in the West Bank Monday.
Ghassan Daglas said two Palestinians were lightly injured as the
rampaging settlers torched fields and hurled rocks in the northern city
of Nablus. He said some of the settlers were on horseback, leaving
fires blazing in their wake.
Reports of the crowd size vary, with between 10 and 30 settlers taking part in the unrest.
An Israeli border guard spokesman said one settler was arrested.
settlers were apparently retaliating because the army removed a
settler's caravan from an unauthorized settlement outpost in the area
earlier in the day.
