Israeli settlers in Judea and Samaria are reporting a number of cases of violent disturbances and suspected arson on Friday as the region endures the tense aftermath of what authorities are calling a terrorist attack against a Palestinian family that left a toddler dead.

Dozens of settlers in the southern Hebron Hills community of Beit Hagai were evacuated from their homes after suffering from smoke inhalation sustained as a result of a brushfire that is believed to have been set by local Palestinians.

In total, 28 people were given treatment. Fire crews are working to bring the blaze, which crept up dangerously close to the settlers' homes, under control.
