“Dozens of Arabs and leftist anarchists with cameras and flags blocked the road and began to throw stones at my car and beat on it with the poles of their flags,” Koren relayed. “I pressed the gas pedal and managed to pass through, but they smashed the left windshield and broke a mirror.”

A Jewish female motorist driving behind Koren was also attacked with stones.

Hundreds of Arabs marched earlier in the Samaria village of Hawara, armed with flags and drums, in an event that had been approved and secured by the IDF.
