Residents Succeed in Preventing Arab Bulldozers


"A peaceful protest and the determination of the community was able to prevent a violent provocation," stated representatives of the community of Yitzhar. On Wednesday residents protested and refused to allow construction workers of Arabic-Muslim ethnicity to enter the town. The community has suffered numerous terrorist attacks in the past and considered the presence of non-Jewish workers operating heavy machinery a serious security risk. IDF soldiers arrived at the scene to attempt to bring in the Arab bulldozer drivers but were met with protesters.
