Awarta Arabs Approach Itamar


Arabs from the Palestinian Authority village of Awarta, in Samaria, approached the nearby Jewish community of Itamar, late Monday morning, accompanied by Europeans, ostensibly to harvest olives. Itamar residents told Arutz Sheva that the trees in the area were void of olives and that the Israel Defense Forces were in the area.

Earlier, Arabs came close to the Itamar fence to harvest olives, teased community residents and photographed the area. Soldiers came, confiscated the cameras and distanced them from the area.
