Arabs Rioting Outside Shiloh

Some 300 Arabs from the village of Turmus, next to Shiloh in the Binyamin region, rioted this morning on lands belonging to the new community of Adei Ad. The Arabs arrived Thursday morning with tractors, with the intent of occupying Adei Ad's land by overturning the soil and destroying crops and trees that members of the community had planted in the formerly barren fields.

Members of the community came out to defend their property, and scuffles and stone throwing ensued. The IDF was alerted and broke up the riot, directing the Arabs back to their village, but the latter refused to cooperate, and the riot was continuing Thursday afternoon, despite the army's efforts.
