Human rights organization Yesh Din reported that Israeli settlers from Esh Kodesh attacked a Palestinian man with rocks and sticks near Jalud on Saturday. Yesh Din claimed that IDF soldiers arrived at the scene to disperse the crowd and fired stun grenades at the Palestinians who had gathered to help the man who was being attacked rather than at the attackers. Defense Minister Benny Gantz responded to the event condemning the actions of the attackers on Twitter Saturday. "The incident in which Jews with their faces covered attacked a Palestinian and threw rocks at him is serious and will be investigated. Whoever throws a stone, risks a life. The Defense system will work to get their hands on whoever tries to harm another's life," said Gantz in the tweet.
