HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Settlers on Monday threw rocks at a Palestinian farmer working on his land near Hebron, a local official said.

Hamdi Abu Maria was working in his tractor when residents of Karmi Tzur settlement attacked him, spokesman of the Beit Ummar popular committee Yousef Abu Maria told Ma'an.

International activists and Beit Ummar residents intervened to help the farmer, and Israeli soldiers arrived and detained committee member Mousa Abu Maria, the spokesman said.

Israeli forces fired tear gas and sound grenades, he added.
