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.

  1. Don't make me laugh so hard. It's called hung by their own petard. If only the stupid Arabs understood that their best options lie in collaboration with Israel. But it seems that they prefer illiteracy, poverty and disease instead of a better life for everyone. What has the last 65 years gotten them – nothing but more pain whilst Israel goes from growth and success to more successes.

  2. Tim Upham says:

    As long as sectarian violence exist, stupid things like this are going to happen. Arabs thinking they are hurting Jews, will really be ending up hurting themselves. Jews thinking they are hurting Arabs, will really be ending up hurting themselves. The other name for sectarian violence is stupidity.
