Police officers were attacked by Jewish settlers in the West Bank, according to a police spokesman. According to media reports, the police were disguised as Arabs. Spokesman Dany Peleg told the Associated Press Saturday that settlers threw stones at officers and attempted to run them over near a Jewish outpost in the West Bank. Five settlers were placed under house arrest. Reports said that the police disguised themselves as Arabs to apprehend Jewish settlers known for attacking Palestinians. They did not note what the police were wearing. Peleg would not comment on the disguise. News of the incident emerged after a court criticized the police for putting their men at risk.
