The flames of the newest Arab "intifada" uprising reached two Jewish
farms in Judea and Samaria Tuesday. Arabs burned down a home in Havat
Gilad, in Samaria. They apparently come from the nearby village of
Farata, and made their escape after setting the isolated structure on
fire. Residents of the Jewish farm gave chase and there were physical
altercations between them and Arab villagers.
News agency "Hakol HaYehudi" reported that Havat Gilad residents
tried to put out the fire but the home burned down completely. A dog
that was tied next to the home died in the blaze.
Havat Gilad residents have issued a call to Jews in the area to come
assist them in safeguarding the community.
Security forces arrested three Arabs as suspects in setting fire to
the home. They will be taken to interrogation at the Judea and
Samaria police station.
There have also been clashes between Jews and Arabs Tuesday at Havat
Maon, in the southern Hevron Hills. The fighting was over pasture
land. An Arab was lightly hurt when Jewish residents threw rocks at
him. He was evacuated to a hospital by the Red Crescent. Arabs also
threw rocks at Jewish residents. Army and police forces arrived on
Arab attacks against Jews have become increasingly brazen and
frewquent in recent weeks, in what nationalists say is a new intifada
born of the Arabs´ perception of Jewish weakness in the wake of the
Shalit Deal. (IsraelNationalNews © 2012 02/28/12)
