Two Israeli settlers, including Matan Fogel, brother of the murdered Udi Fogel, one of the victims of the infamous Itamar killings, were lightly injured Thursday in an altercation with Palestinians on Hill 777 near Itamar in the West Bank.

Two adolescent Palestinians killed Udi Fogel in his house in Itamar along with his wife and three of his children 13 months ago.The settlers claim that Fogel and the second injured settler were merely herding sheep when a group of Palestinians began stoning them with rocks and beating them with clubs.

The Palestinians involved claim, in contrast, that the two settlers attacked them first while they were farming near Kfar Yanoun near Itamar.
