Violent clashes erupt between Israelis, Palestinians near Nablus

One Israeli and a number of Palestinians were wounded Monday when clashes broke out on land between a West Bank outpost and a nearby Arab village.

The Israeli was lightly wounded when struck by a rock hurled by a Palestinian during the clashes, Israeli Radio reported. Of the Palestinian casualties, at least one was lightly wounded in his leg, apparently from a gunshot fired by Israeli security forces at the scene.

According to the settlers, dozens of Palestinians marched up to the Eli Ayin outpost armed with knives, and started the violent confrontation.
