Settlers from the Adei Ad illegal outpost in the West Bank threw stones on Friday at an American consulate convoy, which arrived at the area to examine complaints that settlers destroyed Palestinian-owned olive groves the day before.
One of the landowners in the village is an American citizen, Israel Radio reported.
The bulletproof American vehicles only sustained light damage, and no one was hurt.
The American diplomats from the U.S. consulate in Jerusalem arrived at the area after receiving complaints from Palestinians from the village of Turmusayya that settlers uprooted 5,000 olive saplings on Thursday. The saplings were planted in a plot which was only recently cultivated after years of legal battles.
