Some residents of Eish Kadosh near Shiloh, were hiking on Shabbat in the vineyards belonging to the Gush Shilo at around 6 PM.

The hikers were attacked by hundreds of Arabs armed with clubs and stones from the village Kotzra. Three of the hikers were hurt with injuries all over their bodies from the stones and clubs.

The community’s emergency response team (Kitat Konninut) and the IDF were called up, while simultaneously, the Kotrza village mosque loudspeakers began calling in Arabic to the villagers to go up to the Aish Kadosh community.

When the emergency response team arrived they also came under attack by the Arab lynch mob, but without non-lethal weapons to handle the attacking mob, they found themselves under attack and unable to respond. The emergency response team suffered three injured members. All six wounded were treated by medics from the emergency response team.

After the IDF arrived at the attack, the emergency response team then returned to the settlement to protect it from rioters gaining entrance.

The IDF forces that arrived were then flanked by Arab rioters who attacked them from three directions. The IDF began responding with crowd dispersal tools

Clashes are still going on (8:40PM) and IDF is trying to push back the rioters from the settlement.

Aaron Katzuf, the Aish Kadosh community spokesman, said the, “community’s children are crying. They’s unable to sleep due to the shouts of ‘Itbach El Yahud‘ (Slaughter the Jews) and ‘Allah Akbar‘, as well as from the sounds of explosions and flares.”

  1. Again, the World is quiet! This is the time we should stop these thugs. Try to be nice and stop these people from attacking (diplomacy) sometimes works and sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes, no matter how nice you try to be, these people don't care. They don't want to hear what you say, they want to hurt or kill. That's their goal. Well, I believe that's the time we must stop them and not listen to everyone else who says, no, leave them alone, they're good people and only want to make peace. Don't believe it. I thought that way for a long time, but, finally, the sad truth, that is, the wakening has finally struck me. We must somehow stop this kind of abuse. Sadly, I have to agree with your other commentators. I don't like that kind of solution, but these attackers either know what they are doing or they don't and they should get what they deserve and that will stop them and others from continually hurting Jews. For that matter, from hurting anybody. I learned in the boy scouts many years ago, "Be Prepared". Well, I think this should be the motto of the IDF and it's branches, next time anything this happens, don't take it lightly, "Be Prepared". Thank you. May we never have to see this happen again, IY"H.

  2. Yeah, most odd. I wonder why it is being downplayed? Probably for the same reason Haaretz made a big splash about Christians being under attack by the orthodox, yet neglecting to mention Muslim harassment of Christians has been going on for a while all over the region and no-one seems to care… control the media and you control the message.

  3. I'm disgusted to read stories like this. Whatever happened to"never again". It's happening again and again the Jews are not defending themselves. These are the descendents of David, Saul and other kings who knew how to fight. When will those idiots in the Israel government wake up an realize that being nice to their enemies will only invite more attacks and more hatred? If the Jews don't defend themselves.

  4. no more rubber bullets. arabs perceive no severe consequences for their severe actions. Live bullets stop terrorists and voilence.. no more mr. nice guy;you'll come in last! No more Jewish blood;no more shahadis in our HOLY LAND!

  5. the art of war-tsung tsu says: know your enemy, a thousand battles, a thousand victorys. well we have had a thousand battles so now it's time to reap what we have learned and to solve our problems and so the left, ngo's 5th columnists must let go and so called right wingers that costume as right must also be fired ..then order.

  6. footballs. They're made of pigskin. Football should become the unofficial game of Israel. There should be footballs EVERYWHERE. Take one in your backpack, in your shopping bag, in your stroller. Throw it. The British used pig fat as lubricant on their bullets during their stay – good deterrant value.
