Jewish settlers and Palestinians traded curses and blows during a second day of clashes in the West Bank town of Hebron. A least one person was hospitalized during Sunday’s clashes. Settlers said the fighting began a day earlier when a Palestinian attempted to sexually assault a 14-year-old Jewish girl. Palestinian officials denied the charge, calling it a pretext by settlers hoping to see the Camp David summit fail.
