Settlers, Palestinians clash (Video: B'Tselem)


Six settlers were arrested after the incident that took place last week.


According to the settlers, Palestinians were hurling stones in their direction as they were traveling in Zarqa Valley, prompting the settlers to flee the area.


The settlers then called for help, and the rescue force that arrived at the scene was met with Palestinians throwing stones, and fired warning shots so as to rescue the travelers.

According to the Palestinians, however, the travelers stopped at a reservoir in the area and went into the water, at which point local residents asked that they step out, but the travelers refused and started throwing stones in the direction of nearby house.


As a result, a brawl ensued.


The B'Tselem video has no record of the events leading up to the clashes, but it captures two of the settlers aiming their weapons at Palestinians.


The incident concluded when IDF troops arrived at the scene and detained six settlers. Police motioned to have their remand be extended but the court decided to release them.
