RAMALLAH, Jul. 26, 2010 (Xinhua News Agency) -- Four Jewish settlers and two Palestinians were injured during clashes between the two sides near a settlement to the south of Nablus city in the West Bank on Monday, witnesses said.

The settlers went to the street to express anger after Israeli police demolished a house and a barn that were built in an Israeli settlement near the Palestinian village of Burin, saying the demolishment violated an Israeli government freeze on settlement expansion in the West Bank, Israel Radio reported.

Palestinian villagers and the settlers threw stones at each other outside the settlement and six people were wounded, the witnesses said.

One of the Palestinians sustained a serious injury while the others were lightly wounded in the clashes, a Xinhua photographer said.

Last November, Israel announced a 10-month freeze of settlement activities in the West Bank as it sought peace negotiations with the Palestinians. However, the Palestinians demand that the freeze be applicable to East Jerusalem as well.

However, Israel refuses to halt settlement constructions in East Jerusalem, the city that the Palestinians want as their future capital.
