PA Arabs Torch Arab Field Next to Har Bracha


Palestinian Authority Arabs set fire, Monday morning, to an Arab agricultural plot on a slope leading up to the Samarian (Shomron) Jewish community of Har Bracha, according to the Tatzpit news agency. A resident of Har Bracha told the news agency that in the past, Arab arsonists have come as close as they can to Jewish land and start the fires, which burn their way up onto Jewish property in the direction of the community.

Community residents, Palestinian Authority firefighters and members of the Israel Defense Forces were reportedly working to prevent the fire from spreading toward the community.
