Thirty Leftists/Arabs Arrested Near Bat Ayin

About 30 radical leftists and Arabs were arrested on Shabbat for violating IDF orders not to enter the area of Bat Ayin. The detainees were released after questioning.

The leftists claimed that they arrived in order to "protect" local Arabs, who have complained that Bat Ayin residents harass them – charges the residents deny. "The only reason these people come here is to incite trouble in the area. Their presence here is unnecessary," one resident told Arutz 7 on Saturday night.
