The clashes erupted after soldiers intervened to protect dozens of Israeli settlers who attacked the entrance of the village village.

The most recent clash came a day after a series of attacks by settlers on the village left several homes damaged, and one property set afire.

Attacks and vandalism by settlers targeting the village in particular and other areas in the West Bank in general intensified over the past two days.
