Violent Clash next to Elon Moreh

Dozens of Arabs, international anarchists and other leftists attacked two residents of the Samarian Jewish community of Elon Moreh Friday morning as the pair inspected the eruv, marking boundary of the community for the purpose of observing Shabbat. The Samaria Regional Council says the attackers arrived at the scene without notifying the army or the Civil Administration for Judea and Samaria and attacked the Elon Moreh residents with rocks, large stones and poles.

The victims managed to escape and notify the Israel Defense Forces, as well as the community's first response team. The assailants threw rocks at the security forces when they arrived, and only stopped and dispersed when one of the soldiers fired a warning shot in the air.
