Israeli police are investigating a video showing a man being beaten and kicked by Israeli settlers in the occupied West Bank on Sunday.
In the video, which was posted on Facebook by an Israeli settler, the man, identified as Mohammed, is heard kicking and hitting the settler before he is kicked out of the home.
The settler who recorded the video was arrested by Israeli police in the West Bank city of Hebron and was later released, police said.
Palestinian protesters have long used video and images of Israeli settlers to demonstrate their displeasure with the settlement-building on occupied land.
On Monday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on Palestinians to “get the message loud and clear” that they will face “immediate” and “continuous” violence by Israeli forces.
The new law requires that Israeli authorities issue a notice to every settler in the area, who is found to be in violation of the law.
If the settlor does not immediately stop his action, the settlors face a fine of $5,000 (US$3,800).
If the occupier continues his actions, the violator faces a fine up to $10,000.
The bill is part of a wider crackdown on protests by Palestinians against Israeli settlement building in the territory.
In recent weeks, dozens of Palestinians have been killed and hundreds injured in clashes with Israeli security forces.
Israel has denied responsibility for any violence against Palestinians, and says it will not tolerate attacks on Israelis.
But the law could put Palestinians at risk of being arrested and charged under the law, as well as being prosecuted for trespassing.
The measure was introduced on Monday by the justice minister, Tzipi Livni.
“Israel has never used violence against the Palestinians.
It’s the only place in the world where the people of Israel live and work in peace,” she said in a statement.”
In the current circumstances, the occupation must take a tougher stance in order to ensure the protection of the rights of the Palestinian people.”
