Palestinians Escaping PA Hit Squad Find Refuge in Israeli Community

Two frightened Palestinians, escaping from a Palestinian hit squad, sought refuge and found it in the Israeli community of Beit Aryeh, in Samaria last night.

They told of a group of Palestinian security officers who were chasing them with the intent of killing them.

Regional Council Head Avi Naim immediately alerted the Israeli security forces. They searched the two for weapons, eliminating the possibility that this was a ploy to execute an attack, and, once cleared, they were offered shelter.

Israeli security forces continued to search for the hit squad. They encountered four Palestinians who presented themselves as members of a Special Forces unit. A search revealed a loaded weapon, which constitutes a breach of the peace accords with Israel, prohibiting Palestinian security forces from carrying weapons in an Israeli controlled zone.

Naim says that this was the first time he has encountered such bizarre circumstances. “We have gotten used to providing support to the Palestinians, but this is the first time we have encountered such an incident. Palestinians being chased by the Palestinian security forces, taking cover in a nearby Jewish community – I hope this is not a sign of a new developing reality in Judea and Samaria. Livni and Kerry – you have been warned.”

Naim pointed out that Beit Aryeh is located near the village of Luban, and that the relations between the two communities are good. “We invite each other to communal events. We are interested in good neighborly relations with everyone.”

    We really care about humanity(and everyone deserves to live and prosper, the”politics’ is proganda, those that found refuge, escaped for their LIFE!

  2. I strongly disagree they should round them up and send them back what happens in Palestine stays in Palestine

  3. Yechiel Baum says:

    you mean they hunting their own kind? will they call the hunters "Israeli's". They should bring these two to the UN and speak on behalf of the true philistines about the PA ham ASS criminals instead of wasting UN time with deceitful fabrications of abASS and ham ASS. Will the world then ignore the truth?
