Shooting Between Jews and Bedouins Near Maoz Esther

Five Israelis and two Bedouin were arrested, included two who reportedly shot at Bedouin Arabs in two separate incidents near the outpost of Maoz Esther in Binyamin on Tuesday afternoon.

Several people were also reported injured in the melee that followed two days of restrictions imposed by the new IDF Samaria Brigade Commander, Col. Itzik Bar, against Israeli cars coming into the area for fear they were bringing activists who might provoke local Arabs.

The incidents came in the wake of clashes in response to the destruction by the IDF of a structure at the Adei Ad outpost.
