Palestinian Authority Arabs throwing Molotov cocktails at passing Israeli cars in Samaria Thursday ignited a forest fire near the Jewish community of Neve Tzuf, located in the Binyamin region north of Jerusalem.

Volunteers quickly arrived on the scene and began to extinguish the blaze to prevent flames from spreading to nearby homes, and firefighters arrived to assist.

No injuries were reported, but heavy damaged was caused to the greenery. Security forces searched for the attackers and found remnants of more Molotov cocktails, but no arrests were made.

Arab Rioters Attack Israeli Vehicle in Benjamin Region

Tuesday, May 8th, 2012

Palestinians rioters at around 11 p.m. Monday blocked with stones the Benjamin-crossing highway near the settlement of Neve Tzuf in south-west Samaria. An Israeli vehicle with four Tel Aviv residents hit the barrier and was damaged.

The event took place at the Abud bypass, in front of the village of Deir Abu Mashal, about 500 meters from the point where a resident of Neve Tzuf was injured last week when her vehicle was stoned by Arab rioters in broad daylight. The wounded woman was treated at the scene and did not need to be evacuated, but her car suffered serious damage.

Security forces from the settlement of Neve Tzuf and IDF forces reached the scene Monday night and began searching for the attackers.

Neve Tzuf was established on the ruins of a Talmud-era village, in November, 1977, by 40 families of both National Religious and secular Israelis. The murder of a Jewish resident at the settlement’s gate—a unique event back then—caused a mass desertion of the place, with only seven families choosing to stay.

Today some 250 families (close to 1,000 residents) live in Neve Tzuf, which is situated 35 minutes from Jerusalem and 45 minutes from Tel Aviv. The community is religious, with 55% Ashkenazi, 33% Sephardi, and 15% Yemenite.
