Masked Jewish settlers, top, clash with Palestinians in the West Bank village of Assira al-Kibliya, Tuesday, Sept. 20, 2011. Israeli settlers and Palestinian villagers threw stones at each other Tuesday, a day after Palestinian officials said settlers burned dozens of acres (hectares) of agricultural land and cut down several hundred olive, fig and almond trees. The latest friction came at a particularly sensitive time, with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas saying he is determined to seek U.N. recognition this week of a state of Palestine in the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem, areas Israel captured in 1967.
