Violent 'price tag' attacks follow fatal stabbing of West Bank settler

Following the fatal stabbing of a settler from Yitzhar by a Palestinian this morning, there are numerous reports of so-called “price tag” attacks of Palestinians in the northern West Bank.

Settlers from Yitzhar reportedly threw stones at a Palestinian school bus that had been stopped by the IDF, injuring a number of children who were evacuated to hospitals in Nablus, Rabbis for Human Rights and Maan reported. The settlers also set fire to a number of wheat fields, in addition to damaging olive and almond trees. The settlers were reportedly preventing firefighters from reaching the blaze.

Later, a Palestinian farmer from the village of Furik was attacked and left in moderate condition, also according to a report from RHR.

On a related note, the IDF is saying that the stabbing of the settler this morning was likely the work of an individual Palestinian acting on his own, Ynet reports.

Four settlers were arrested after entering Kfar Uris where they threw stones and attempted to set a building on fire, Ynet reported.
