AL-KHALIL, -- Palestinian villagers in Safa town to the north of Al-Khalil city on Thursday clashed with Israeli occupation forces (IOF) and Jewish settlers who tried to enter their village.
Eyewitnesses said that tens of those settlers from Etzion settlement arrived at the northern area of the village and started Talmudic rituals under protection of IOF troops.
The villagers were provoked by the scene and tried to get the settlers go away but were confronted by the soldiers who fired teargas and sonic bombs and engaged the villagers in violent confrontations for hours before the settlers withdrew from the scene without any casualties reported.
