Due to the rising tensions in the countries neighboring Northern Israel, the IDF has recently positioned multiple “Iron Dome” anti-rocket systems around Israel’s north.
Some of the installations are nearby to Israeli Arab villages, and NRG/Maariv reports that today a group of Israeli Arabs cursed the IDF soldiers manning the installation, and pelted them with rocks till the police arrived.
A 14 year old Israeli Arab was arrested.
The IDF denies that the recent placement of Iron Dome batteries has anything to do with the insurgency in Syria or the alleged chemical and game-changing weapon transfers.
The question is, why would Israeli Arabs hurl curses, harass and stone IDF soldiers — when the anti-rocket system protects them as well?
What a perplexing country we live in.
