About 20 West Bank settlers attacked IDF soldiers in Giv’at Ze’ev near the Itamar settlement on Saturday. The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said that the settlers were rioting and throwing stones at the soldiers.

In response, the soldiers used tear gas and other non-lethal riot control measures to disperse the crowd. In addition, they fired warning shots into the air.

Later on Saturday, the IDF arrested three of the suspects who were involved in the incident. On Sunday, they will be brought in front of a judge for a remand hearing.
