Palestinian and Settler Wounded in West Bank Confrontation

A violent West Bank altercation between settlers and Palestinians resulted in two people wounded on Friday, amid rising tensions ahead of a planned Palestinian statehood bid at the United Nations.

The incident occurred near the West Bank settlement of Shilo, as a group of settlers reportedly set out on a hike near the Palestinian village of Qusra when a conflict began with a few of the residents of the villages. It was not yet clear who started the incident.

Initial reports claimed that one settler was lightly wounded as a result of a reported stabbing attack near the Ein Kodesh outpost, with one Palestinian seriously wounded after reportedly being shot by a member of the settler group.

According to the Palestinian news agency Ma’an, village watchmen were able to grab hold of nine settlers who had entered the village.
