An Israeli settler sustained serious head injuries on Monday evening in a brawl with a Palestinian near the Havat Maon outpost in the South Hebron Hills of the West Bank.

Israeli police and the army were dispatched to the scene and arrested a Palestinian suspect, who had been lightly injured in the confrontation. The police have opened an investigation into the incident.

According to an Israeli security official, a group of Palestinians approached the outpost, prompting two Israelis from the farm outpost to confront them. One of the Palestinians then attacked one of the Israelis, the source said, and the other Israeli fired in the air. Israeli troops then arrived at the scene to separate the two sides.

Following the arrest of the Palestinian suspect, two other Palestinians were arrested for interfering with the Israeli security forces at the scene.
