A Palestinian and an Israeli security guard for the Yitzhar settlement were injured Monday in clashes that took place outside the West Bank Jewish community.

The incident began after a Palestinian approached the settlement and, after refusing to heed warnings, was distanced by the settlement's security guards and the IDF, an army spokeswoman said.

Yitzhar spokesman Avraham Binyamin said that the security guard had initially called the IDF after seeing the Palestinian, who he identified as a shepherd from the nearby village of Ma'adame, come very close to Yitzhar.

Before the IDF arrived the guard asked the shepherd to move away from the settlement, but he refused, Binyamin said.
