Several Palestinians are reported hurt in an alleged attack by settlers near the northern West Bank outpost of Homesh.
According to the Yesh Din rights group, several extremist settlers attacked Palestinians in the village of Burqa and set fire to homes.

Meanwhile, the Samaria Regional Council and the Israeli Rescuers Without Borders emergency service say one Israeli settler is lightly hurt after stones were hurled at him by Palestinians.
It is unclear which side started the violence. Palestinians and rights groups have accused settlers from Homesh of attacking Palestinians in Burqa in the past.
Yesh Din says the incident comes after foreign diplomats visited the Homesh area, which was recently declared legal for Israelis to enter after 18 years.
Homesh is built partly on private Palestinian land belonging to residents of Burqa, according to a High Court ruling.
