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