A volunteer photographer from Tatzpit, an organization that documents Arab violence in Judea and Samaria, took pictures of the Arab arson attack near Neveh Tzuf Monday.

The Arabs can be seen as small figures on the crest of the mountain in at least one of the photos, taken just before the fire began to spread. 

Local Jews expressed extreme anger at the helplessness exhibited by the IDF, which did not take any kind of effective action against the arsonists and is not known to have made any arrests.

Local Arabs have been attacking Jewish property and taunting the IDF at Neveh Tzuf for over a year, taking advantage of the IDF's unwillingness to use overwhelming force against them.
