The Yesh Din rights group says settlers from the illegal Homesh outpost attacked Palestinians in the neighboring village of Burka, damaging several homes and vandalizing graves at the local cemetary.

IDF troops arrived at the scene and fired rubber bullets and teargas to disperse the Palestinian locals who gathered in response to the attack, Yesh Din says.

Three Burka residents were injured in the altercation.
