An Arab mob yelling "Allahu Akbar!" approached the southwestern entrance to Beit El on Wednesday morning.

Beit El is a Jewish town in Samaria, just northeast of Ramallah.

Beit El residents heard shooting emanating from Ramallah since the early hours of Wednesday morning, then found an Arab mob approaching their town.

The Arab mass burned tires, filling the Jewish town with a pall of acrid smoke.

They also threw rocks at IDF soldiers in the area.

IDF soldiers responded with rubber bullets and tear gas.
