Two Israeli Arabs were allegedly beaten by residents of the West Bank settlement of Havat Gilad on Tuesday, after their car broke down in the settlement, the IDF spokesperson reported on Tuesday.

A contingent of Border Police, IDF soldiers, and Israel police arrived on the scene and detained a local minor on suspicion of being involved in the assault. The two Israeli Arabs were also taken for questioning.

The spokesperson's office said the settlers told them that the two men were in the area trying to steal horses from the settlement.
