Settlers just torched a home in the southern West Bank Palestinian hamlet of Masafer Yatta before fleeing the scene, an eyewitness tells the Haaretz daily.
Footage shows the home up in flames.
The witness says that around the same time, another group of settlers arrived in Masafer Yatta after first raiding the nearby village of Tuba to hurl rocks at homes in both locations.
The IDF says it has received a report of the alleged arson and that its forces are making their way to the scene.
Settler violence has intensified dramatically since the Israel-Hamas war, but Israeli authorities have failed to nab those responsible, save for the administrative detention of one far-right activist.
