Some 250 Palestinians rioted inside the Aish Kadosh settlement (near Shiloh) on Shabbat afternoon.
The Palestinians broke through the fences around the settlement causing major damage.
Thirty residents from Shilo came down to Aish Kadosh to help, and managed to distance the Palestinians from the settlement, but the Palestinian rioters managed to almost reach the settlement’s homes.
During the Arab riot, 11 residents of Aish Kadosh were injured, including one man with a head injury from a slingshot stone. The severely injured man was transported to a hospital, the rest of the injured were treated on site.
A number of the settlement’s farms and vineyards were destroyed, and the Shiloh security chief’s car was damaged.
Eventually the IDF arrived and cleared away the Arab rioters.
