Troop Lightly Wounded in Clash with Arabs at Esh Kodesh

An Israeli soldier was lightly wounded, Monday afternoon, during a clash between the Israel Defense Forces and about 150 Palestinian Authority Arabs who tried to enter Israeli land next to Esh Kodesh in a Binyamin-region bloc of Jewish communities around Shilo, north of Jerusalem.

The Arabs have been plowing land next to the Israeli land since the morning hours with the permission of the military and its Civil Administration for Yehudah (Judea) and Shomron (Samaria). A woman from the community of Shevuat Rachel was detained for questioning by police as a result of clashes between the Arabs and Jewish residents before the army arrived.
