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.”
