NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Clashes erupted Saturday between Israeli settlers and Palestinian residents of the Burin village near Nablus in the northern West Bank, witnesses and the Israeli army said.

Locals told a Ma'an correspondent that residents of the illegal Yitzhar settlement stormed the entrance to Burin, threw rocks at villagers and smashed the windscreen of a car.

Israeli soldiers arrived to the scene and fired tear gas and stun grenades, locals said.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said Israeli civilians came to a road near Burin, and that forces fired riot dispersal means in response to clashes.

The violence came a day after Israeli forces killed a Palestinian man, Issam Kamal Odeh, 33, during clashes sparked by settlers who entered the Nablus-area Qusra village.
