Soldiers in the area intervened to arrest one of the Palestinians after he was also beaten, said the sources.

Settlers have been rampaging in the occupied territories, setting dozens of homes, cars and property on fire under the eyes of Israeli soldiers who intervene only to attack the Palestinians if they attempt to defend themselves against the settlers.

Dozens of Palestinians were also injured in the attacks and from the Israeli army bullets or gas canisters.
