Israeli settlers hurl stones at cars and stores in the Palestinian town of Huwara in the northern West Bank, Palestinian and Hebrew-language media reports say.

A security official tells Israeli news outlets that the group drove a convoy through the town to celebrate the release of a settler, who had been jailed over attacking Palestinians.

Reports claim the settlers were attacked by locals, and in response, they threw stones back.

Three Palestinians are reportedly hurt in the incident and at least 20 cars and two stores are damaged.
