The fire from Gaza has been spreading to Judea and Samaria in recent days, with a steady increase in the number of attacks and violent riots against Jewish civilians and against the security forces. Around 10 PM Monday, Arabs threw several Molotov cocktails at an Egged bus near the community of Adam. Arabs also burned two tires on the road, the Jewish Voice reported.

Earlier, around 6 PM, Arabs threw three Molotov cocktails at the car of a resident of Ma’aleh Levonah, near the village of Sinjil. One Molotov cocktail entered the car and ignited a fire. The driver and a passenger escaped the burning car which rolled down into a canyon and burned to the ground.

In demonstrations outside Rachel’s Tomb Arabs threw 73 Molotov cocktails at the tomb’s compound and at the security forces there. Two rioters were seriously injured by a gas grenade that hit their heads, and seven more were injured only lightly from rubber bullets.

During the day the IDF killed two Arabs when they were throwing Molotov cocktails. One was killed near Halhul, while he was throwing a petrol bomb at IDF soldiers. Earlier an Arab was shot and killed while throwing a Molotov cocktail at the Jewish community of Hebron.

In another riot, on the Bir Zeit bridge, north of Ramallah, the IDF shot a terrorist throwing a Molotov cocktail. He sustained injuries in both legs.

During the day, Monday, five Arabs threw Molotov cocktails at a Border Police base in Atarot. Two bottles were ignited inside the base. Near the Jewish village of Ma’aleh Hever, on the southern slope of Mount Hebron, an Israeli bus was pelted with stones. There were no casualties. In northern Samaria, near the community of Hinanit, Arabs threw a Molotov cocktail that did not ignite.

At Noon some 500 Arabs rioted at halhul bridge near Hebron, threw stones at Jewish vehicles and burned tires. Thank God no one was hurt, and IDF forces dispersed the rioters.

Near Camp Ofer, about 100 Arabs tried to cut the fence and were dispersed by IDF forces.

The Tazpit news agency reported that dozens of Arabs from the village of Azzun threw stones at Jewish vehicles and IDF forces and burned tires on Route 55 near the town of Karnei Shomron. A number of Jewish vehicles were damaged, but IDF soldiers tried to fight off the Arabs using only their riot gear.

Despite what appears like an emerging Intifada throughout Judea and Samaria, the IDF spokesman at the Central Command did not report or comment.
