Arab Rioters Arrested Trying to Penetrate Beit-El Base

Arab rioters held a march, Thursday evening, from Ramallah to the Judea-Samaria (Shomron) Division base of the Israel Defense Forces, according to the Tatzpit news agency. A number of the participants tried to break into the base by climbing over the walls but were repulsed by the base's first response team.

Judea-Samaria Division spokesman Barak Raz said that a group of about 20 leftist extremists demonstrated right outside the Beit-El base. Eight of them made it to the top of an external building next to the base's outer wall. An army unit which arrived on the scene broke up the assembly and the eight who made it to the roof were arrested and turned over to the police.
