Dozens of masked settlers armed with batons, shovels, rocks and a Molotov cocktail attacked a group of Israeli left-wing activists and Palestinians near the village of Burin in the West Bank on Friday morning, injuring at least three. Police are investigating the incident in which the settlers poured gas on one of the vehicles, causing it to explode. The activists - some affiliated with Rabbis for Human Rights and the Harvest Group — had driven to Burin to help local Palestinians plant trees in honor of the Tu B’Shvat holiday.

According to one of the activists Daniel Roth, the group had planted a number of trees in one lot and then moved to another one when the attack occurred. Two of the vehicles belonging to activists were stoned before one of them was torched, he explained.
