BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Three Israeli settlers were reportedly rescued from Qalandiya refugee camp in the central occupied West Bank on Friday morning, after they had accidentally wandered into the area.

Israeli news site Ynet reported that the three were lightly injured after being stoned by the camp's residents, and were eventually "rescued" by Israeli security forces.

Following their extraction, they were interrogated by the security forces, the report added.

An Israeli army spokesperson could not immediately confirm the incident, and told Ma'an they were looking into the case to confirm the outcome of the interrogations.

In March 2016, Israeli soldiers mistakenly entered Qalandiya refugee camp, sparking fierce clashes between local Palestinians and the Israeli forces sent into the camp to rescue the two soldiers.

During the clashes, 22-year-old Iyad Omar Sajadiyya, a journalism student at al-Quds University in Abu Dis, was shot in the head by Israeli soldiers and killed.
