Authorities have opened an investigation.

While details of the event are still emerging, arson attacks have previously been used in what have been deemed 'price tag' attacks by extremist settlers in the West Bank against Palestinians.

Palestinian Arabic language news network al-Quds reported that Israeli "settlers set fire to the vehicle of Mustafa Dhamidi from the town of Huwara."

This is a developing story.
