The head of the village council, Raed Abu Jamous, told the official Palestinian news agency, Wafa, that Israeli settlers came to the settlement outpost, which they started to establish since Friday morning, on the village lands, under the protection of the occupation army, and the local Palestinian residents confronted them, which led to the outbreak of confrontations.
