The Foreign Ministry on Thursday rejected an internal European Union report which criticized Israel's efforts to restrain settler violence against Palestinians as insufficient, Army Radio reported.

According to the ministry, the report is based exclusively on Palestinian sources. The ministry added that the report's authors made no efforts to solicit the Israeli side of the story and that it is essentially an instrument of Palestinian propaganda.

The document claims that in the past year there have been 411 incidents of violence of Israeli settlers against Palestinians, including: stone throwing, uprooting of trees and arson of mosques.

The report's authors further allege that the violence is organized and part of a systematic effort to expel Palestinians from settlement areas in order to expand the settlements.
