The Palestinian Authority health ministry says three Palestinians are wounded by live fire during an attack by settlers and clashes with Israeli troops near the West Bank town of Turmus Ayya.

The ministry says they have been brought to a hospital in Ramallah for treatment.

It was not clear who opened fire in the town.

There is no immediate comment from the Israeli military or police on the incidents.

Hundreds of settlers rampaged through Turmus Ayya earlier, setting fire to dozens of homes and cars.
