Two underage Jewish youth were arrested Tuesday at a skirmish between Jewish farmers and Arab residents near the community of Eish Kodesh in the Benyamin district of Samaria. Their remand was extended by the Jerusalem Magistrate's Court. The two deny attacking the Arab residents.
The conflict began as Arabs arrived in the area to farm nearby land for the first time. The land has been farmed by Jews from Esh Kodesh for several years, but Arabs recently laid claim to it.
