Some 20 settlers entered the Palestinian village of Jalud near the Esh Kodesh outpost on Wednesday night, threw stones at windows and attacked a child, according to security sources.
The child was lightly injured and taken to the hospital.
Incidents such as this, a security source said, are viewed very seriously. They undermine safety in the area, and divert the IDF and Border Police’s attention, a source said.
The source noted that the IDF was still investigating the incident, which stemmed from a land dispute between the Esh Kodesh outpost and nearby Palestinian villages, including Jalud.
