Three settlers were arrested on Saturday after they entered territory near Sussiya defying an IDF order banning them from the area near the Palestinian village. The settlers allegedly wrote the word “revenge” and a Star of David in stones near the village.

In a statement police said the settlers attacked Palestinian residents of Sussiya. Police arrived on the scene after the IDF, which sought to clear the settlers from the area. However, the settlers resisted IDF efforts.

Police detained the three men for further questioning and released them the same day.

With a population of only 400, the Palestinian village of Sussiya has garnered international attention as it faces a demolition order from the government. A police spokeswoman said the settlers came from an area nearby the adjacent Jewish settlement of the same name.
