Arabs and Jews Clash at Binyamin-Area Community


Clashes broke out, Tuesday morning, next to Esh Kodesh in the Shilo bloc of the Binyamin-region Jewish communities, when residents of the community tried to prevent Arabs from harvesting land that the Jews have been farming for years.

An Arab attacked a Jew with an axe. A Border Police unit that arrived on the scene attacked the Jews with clubs and tear gas. The residents claim that tear gas was also sprayed at mothers who were carrying year-old babies in their arms.
