Settlers attack Palestinian school near Nablus

NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Clashes broke out near Nablus on Tuesday after settlers attacked a Palestinian school in the village of Urif, a Palestinian official said.

Ghassan Daghlas, an official who monitors settler activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that six Palestinians were injured by rubber-coated steel bullets after Israeli forces intervened in clashes with settlers.

Israeli soldiers fired tear gas and stun grenades at villagers after they clashed with settlers trying to attack a local school.

The incident took place hours after a deadly attack on a synagogue in Jerusalem which killed four Israelis.

Earlier, dozens of settlers had gathered along the main road between Nablus and Yizhar settlement following news of the attack, with witnesses saying they planned to attack Palestinian farmers and cars.

An Israeli army spokesman said Palestinians "rioted" and "hurled rocks" at Israeli security forces.
