Bat Ayin Against Radicalism: ‘IDF Was Right to Withdraw’
Bat Ayin is working to fight the kind of extremism that led to an attack on an Arab driver and two IDF soldiers last week, community security chief El-Chai Fein told Arutz Sheva. In the meantime, he said, the IDF was right to withdraw its soldiers from the town.
“The IDF did the right thing in taking out its soldiers. If I were a commander I would have made a similar decision. Why should the IDF protect us, when residents attack a soldier?” he asked.
The soldiers and Arab driver were sprayed with pepper spray by two masked men at the entrance to Bat Ayin last week.
