Settler-Palestinian conflict erupts near Esh Kodesh outpost

Clashes broke out for the second day running between Palestinians and settlers outside the West Bank out post of Esh Kodesh near the Shiloh settlement Wednesday morning, Army Radio reported.
IDF forces accompanied the Palestinians to the area on Wednesday in order to allow them plough a tract of land they own near the outpost. However, according to outpost inhabitants, the land belongs to residents of Esh Kodesh. Settler residents of Esh Kodesh held prayers on Wednesday morning in the area, which appears to have sparked the conflict with Palestinian residents for a second day.
On Tuesday, two Border Police officers were lightly injured and four Israelis were arrested during clashes that occurred near the Esh Kodesh outpost.
