JERUSALEM —

Israel's military says soldiers have dispersed settlers and Palestinians who were throwing rocks at each other in the West Bank following the killing of a settler there.

The military said dozens of settlers and Palestinians scuffled early Wednesday near the city of Ramallah.

Vandals sprayed "price tag" on a Palestinian house. Some extremists use the term to protest Israeli policy they view as favoring Palestinians.

Nablus governor Jebril Bakri said settlers also smashed cars and windows in villages near the northern West Bank city. The violence came after a Palestinian stabbed a settler to death at a bus stop in the area the day before.

Tensions are high in the West Bank, captured by Israel in the 1967 Mideast war and claimed by Palestinians as part of their future state.
