Jewish settler attacks on the increase as Palestinians call for deployment of international mission

Palestinian officials are calling for an international mission to be deployed to the West Bank to deal with an increasing level of violence against civilians.

Israeli security agencies say the number of attacks by Jewish settlers against Palestinians rose sharply last year.

The latest incident saw one man shot dead and nine others wounded during a confrontation between settlers and Palestinian villagers.
