West Bank Jewish community attacked by PA Arabs

(JNS.org) The Jewish village of Esh Kodesh in the West Bank suffered attacks from hundreds of Arabs from Palestinian Authority-controlled territory last weekend, Tatzpit reported. Jewish residents said a large group of Arabs from the PA town of Kotzra assaulted them with clubs and sticks.

“Children in the village are crying,” community spokesman Aharon Katzuf said on Saturday, according to Israel National News. “They can’t sleep because of the screams of ‘Yitbach al Yahud’ [Slaughter the Jews – ed.] and ‘Allahu Akbar.’” 

Rick Moran, writing for American Thinker, noted that Esh Kodesh has been the site of prior Arab attacks and said he believed the Palestinian Authority “either organized the attack or stood by and did nothing while it was being carried out.”
