Recently, Internal Security Minister Omer Barlev pinned the problems in Judea and Samaria on “settler violence.” Unfortunately, three days after that miserable tweet, a squad of well-organized Arab terrorists murdered a young Jewish settler, proving the minister wrong in the most horrifying way. But while the Arab violence on either side of the 1949 armistice line, a.k.a. the green line, does not end up in tragedy too often (often enough, if you ask us), every single day sees dozens of violent eruptions everywhere in the Land of Israel. Hakol Hayehudi puts out a daily list of these events, which we decided to translate just to give our readers an idea. So, all the events below took place over the past three days:
