Israeli forces detained six Palestinians early Sunday for allegedly involved in attacking settlers in the occupied West Bank.
An Israeli settler was killed and two others were injured in a shooting attack on their vehicle near the Homesh outpost in the northern West Bank.
The Israeli official KAN channel said six Palestinians were arrested in the town of Silat al-Harithiya near the city of Jenin.
The Palestinian news agency Wafa said Israeli forces raided several homes in the town.
A Palestinian woman earlier said that two of her sons had been detained by Israeli forces during a raid on their home.
The Homesh outpost, which was built on Palestinian lands, was evacuated by Israeli authorities in 2005 but Israeli settlers make a regular presence in the area.
Under international law, all Jewish settlements in occupied territories are illegal.
