Settlers clashed with Palestinians in the West Bank who had come to harvest their olives on their own trees Sunday near the settlement of Itamar, Israel Radio reported. The IDF was treating one Palestinian who was lightly injured by a stone thrown at him by the protesting settlers.

According to the report, settlers were protesting the Palestinian harvesters because the olive trees were located near the house where five Fogel-family members were killed in March.

Settlers reportedly complained that the harvesters were from the same family as the two men convicted of murdering the settler family members.
