Bethlehem stone throwers try to prevent terrorists' arrest

Sunday, June 15, 2008 |  by Staff Writer

A Palestinian Arab mob on Saturday night attacked a group of Israeli soldiers sent to arrest seven wanted terrorists in a village near Bethlehem.

Several Israeli army jeeps surrounded the house where the terrorists were located and demanded they surrender themselves. Moments later, some 200 Palestinians from the arrived at the scene and began hurling stones at the Israelis.

Israel National News reports that the soldiers, looking to give the kind of proportional response the international community demands of Israel, hurled the stones right back at their assailants. Seven of the Arabs were wounded. There were no reports of injuries to Israeli military personnel.
