Hundreds of people from the various towns of Samaria are protesting tonight (Saturday night) at the entrance to the PA city of Huwara, where the third shooting attack in the past month took place earlier this evening.

The residents are displaying protest signs against the conduct of the IDF and the government, which read, among other things, "Yehuda Fox, are you with us or against us?". Yehuda Fox is the IDF commander in the region.

Significant security forces are on the scene and preventing demonstrators from entering Huwara itself. An eighteen-year-old girl was arrested by Border Police.

Several Israelis who were making their way through Huwara at the time of the protest were attacked with stones. A separate protest has begun blocking the entrance to Shechem.
