IDF investigating another incident in which revenant allegedly shot a 'Palestinian'

The IDF is investigating an incident in which a revenant allegedly shot a 'Palestinian' on Saturday. Here's raw video of part of the incident. This time you won't see the shooting.

Let's go to the videotape.

In case you're wondering, the soldier is shouting oofoo mipo (get out of here) in Hebrew. Here's more about the incident.
A man from the West Bank settlement of Yitzhar shot and wounded a Palestinian man on Saturday in a clash that began when a group of settlers set fire to fields belonging to a Palestinian village, officials said.

Residents said about 25 settlers, some of them carrying guns, set fire to wheat fields in the village of Orif, which is near the northern West Bank city of Nablus.

Some villagers came out to extinguish the fire and clashed with the settlers, said Nablus official Kassan Daglas.

During the clash, a settler shot and wounded one Palestinian, the IDF said, adding that security forces were sent to the scene to break up the violence.
Sorry, but I don't buy this account. I have little doubt that the revenants of Yitzhar would shoot a 'Palestinian' in self-defense. What I don't buy about this incident is that I don't believe that the revenants started it. There is no way the Orthodox Jews of Yitzhar set fires anywhere on the Sabbath. Something happened before, the 'Palestinians' set the fires, or both. In the meantime, I haven't seen any responses from the revenants, which is not surprising given that the Sabbath was followed immediately by the holiday.

Forget the Jerusalem Post, which has been running the race for the Conservative and Reform religions and has been constantly filled with prejudice and even outright lies about settlers and settlements, to the point of journalists writing about facts as if they had been present while they were not (I knew since I was there!).
You can find the story in a much more reliable source also in English at:
