An Arab terrorist was shot and killed by Israeli forces on Saturday during an attack on the Israeli community of Aish Kodesh in Samaria.

Some 100 Arabs marched on the community and confronted some 30 Israelis who came out to defend themselves. The rioters threw rocks at the Israelis, and then at the IDF forces who arrived on site to end the violence.
