Three Israelis were injured Thursday in two separate incidents in which Palestinians threw rocks at their vehicles in the West Bank.

In the pre-dawn hours, an Israeli was injured near Bethlehem and his vehicle was damaged.

Later in the day, two Israelis were lightly injured by rockets between the Efrat settlement and the city of Hebron.

Separately, in the Binyamin Region, residents of the Esh Kodesh outpost near the Shiloh settlement reported that Palestinians tried to cut the fence to their vineyards.

The incident is part of an ongoing battle between settlers and Palestinians over farmland in that area.

"We were making a snow man and taking a beautiful picture in the snow," said Esh Kodesh resident Aron Katsof.

All of a sudden, he said, one of the women started to yell.

"We saw 100 Arabs trying to push over the fence to the vineyard," Katsof said.

He added that security forces responded and dispersed the Palestinians using tear gas.
