The settlers also attacked the residents who came to put out the fire, and injured many of them. Ambulances were also prevented from transferring the injured.

The Jewish settlers also tried to storm a house on the northern side of the village, and other houses on the western side, which led to the outbreak of violent clashes.

According to the official, Israeli forces joined in on the attack, firing sound bombs and toxic tear gas at the villagers. No injuries were reported.
