Christian volunteers stoned while working Jewish fields in 'West Bank'

Wednesday, February 10, 2010 |  Israel Today Staff

Palestinian Arabs attacked and wounded five Christian volunteers working the fields around the Jewish community of Har Bracha in the so-called "West Bank" on Tuesday, reported Israel National News.

The five volunteers, all from America, were lightly wounded in the attack. When the security officer for Har Bracha arrived at the scene and witnessed a group of Arabs stoning the Christians, he fired his weapons in the air causing the attackers to flee.

All five volunteers were back to work on Wednesday.

The story received no international media coverage, though reports, even unsubstantiated reports, of Jews disrupting Palestinian harvesting regularly receive extensive coverage.
