Youths Harassed at Tree Planting

Some 3,000 youths were planting trees near Efrat in Gush Etzion in honor of Tu B'shvat, which is being commemorated in Israel on Thursday. The youths were all members of Bnei Akiva. Sources told Arutz 7 that leftists and Arabs protested near the planting site, and were harassing the young teenagers and children who were trying to plant trees.

On Friday, a special tree planting will take place at Netzer in Gush Etzion, in honor of Jonathan Pollard. The event, sponsored by Women in Green, will take place at 9 AM and is open to all.
