According to a right-wing NGO, the Honenu organisation, the two policemen were approached by the teens who enquired as to why they were there, after receiving no clear answer, one of the settlers struck an officer, while the other was sprayed with pepper spray. Both of the suspects have been arrested and questioned.
Haaretz has reported that the police have not issued a statement on the operation, only confirming that one policeman was lightly wounded.
