Two Border Police officers were lightly injured and four Israelis were arrested during clashes that occurred Tuesday outside the West Bank Eish Kodesh outpost, near the Shiloh settlement.

The incident was sparked by a land dispute between Eish Kodesh residents and Palestinians from the nearby village of Kusra.

According to security sources, a recent High Court of Justice ruling has mandated that the Palestinians be allowed to plough a tract of land near the outpost.
