On Thursday, Arabs launched an attack on Israelis in and near Yitzhar. It began when they ignited a large fire near an IDF tent encampment in the hope the wind would help burn down the tents.
When Yitzhar residents and soldiers came over to put out the fire, the Arabs attacked them with a barrage of stones.
When the IDF failed to properly prevent the Arabs from attacking them, the residents of Yitzhar began to throw stones back at their attackers. At least one Arab terrorist was hurt by a stone.
In the meantime, the fire spread and soon reached the olive groves of another nearby Arab village, where dozens of Arab owned trees were burned down.
