Clashes at Esh Kodesh for Second Day

Clashes broke out at the Binyamin-region community of Esh Kodesh for a second day Wednesday as Arabs from a nearby town came to work land in the area. The land in question was used by Jewish farmers for many years, but was turned over to Arabs by the military after they claimed ownership.

There were clashes at the site on Tuesday as well. Two teens from Esh Kodesh were in court Wednesday over accusations that they attacked Arabs, a charge the two deny.
