Israeli settlers, Palestinians skirmish near Itamar

Israeli settlers, Palestinians skirmish near Itamar

By JPOST.COM STAFF04/12/2012 15:38

Matan Fogel, brother of murdered Udi Fogel of infamous Itamar killings, lightly injured in altercation.


The brother of Udi Fogel was one of two settlers lightly injured Thurdsay in an altercation with Palestinians on Hill 777, an outpost near Itamar in the West Bank. Mattan is the younger brother of Udi, who two adolescent Palestinians killed along with his wife and three of his children 13 months ago.

The settlers claim that Fogel and the second injured settler were herding sheep when a group of Palestinians began stoning them and beating them with clubs.

Following the incident, Matan and his companion were taken to the hospital by Magen David Adom paramedics on the scene.

In contrast, the Palestinians involved claim that the two settlers attacked them first while they were farming near Kfar Yanoun near Itamar.

According to the Palestinian account, three Palestinians were wounded in the fight and five were subsequently arrested by security forces.

This JP article - hardly a Pro-Palestinian publication - is far more objective than the propaganda posted previously from "israelnationalnews."
