Havat Gilad: Border Guard Officers, settlers clash after arson attack

Clashes between Border guard officers and settlers near the Havat Gilad settlement in Samaria after a Palestinian field was set on fire nearby. Settlers claimed that the Border Guards arrested a 15 year old using violence and tear gas. The Border Guards claim that the settlers were dispersed without use of force or crowd dispersal means and stressed that they were unaware of any arrests carried out at the scene or use of pepper spray.


Samaria residents confirmed that the field in question was most likely set on fire by the settlers, but expressed surprise over the move and said that: "There are no olive trees in the area, only trimmings and so the purpose of the fire is unclear". (Yair Altman)
