A group of settlers entered the Palestinian village of Beitillu late Tuesday night, painted the words "price tag" on the wall of a home and broke windows in some of the abodes, according to the IDF.

Although the incident occurred after Evyatar Borovsky, 31, was stabbed to death Tuesday morning in the Tapuch Junction, it was unclear if the price tag incident was related to his death, the IDF said.

The Tapuch Junction is located in located in the Samaria region in the Nablus area, whereas Beitillu is in the Binyamin region, near Ramallah.

According to the IDF, the Palestinians came outside to confront the settlers, and violence broke out in which both sides threw stones at the other.

Security forces responded and used riot dispersal means against both groups, the IDF said.

One of the settlers was hit by a stone and lightly injured, the IDF said. Five of the vehicles settlers used to arrive at the village were damaged by stones, the IDF said.

Separately, in the Hebron region, on Wednesday afternoon, a Molotov cocktail was thrown at an Israeli vehicle. On Wednesday night, two Israeli were lightly injured when stones were thrown at their vehicle near Bethlehem in the Gush Etzion region.
