A video taped from inside an IDF position in eastern Jerusalem and uploaded by 0404 news Wednesday shows how frustrating being an IDF soldier is, these days.

The soldiers are caged in inside their fortified position, and do nothing but watch as Arab rioters hurl rocks and fireworks at them.

The person who is in radio contact with the soldier inside the position tells him not to worry because the attackers are unable to harm him.

The soldier inside the position says the event is being documented.

IDF soldiers are rarely given permission to fire at rioters who attack them, due to extreme pressure from far-left NGOs and left-wing legislators.
