Palestinian medics say three men were injured during clashes with IDF troops in the northern West Bank village of Burin.

An IDF spokeswoman said clashes erupted Saturday when soldiers stopped a group of Palestinians trying to approach a Jewish settlement.

Palestinians residents said settlers were trying to bathe in a water cistern in their village.

Palestinians hurled rocks at the soldiers who responded with tear gas and rubber-coated steel pellets.
