Settlers return to Nablus holy site days after shooting

TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained some 40 settlers from the extremist "Hilltop Youth" movement who entered the Balata refugee camp in Nablus late Wednesday, Israeli media reported.

The teenagers bypassed Israeli army and police checkpoints before entering the area, which is under full Palestinian security control.

The Israeli army fired stun grenades and detained several of the activists for questioning, the Israeli news site Ynet reported. The army and police are still searching for additional teens, Ynet said.

On Sunday, an Israeli settler was shot dead and four others were injured after a group of Jewish worshipers snuck into Nablus without coordinating with Palestinian or Israeli security.
