(AFP/Al Ray) The photographer said that several of around 100 settlers, who were gathered at the side of the road, threw stones at his car, cracking the windscreen and lightly injuring him in the face and hands.

Israeli soldiers on the scene did not intervene, he added.

In photographs of the incident, four settlers are seen running, three of them with pistols. Another shows the settlers stoning the car, while the soldiers watched.

After the attack, soldiers moved the settlers on.
