IDF troops engaged rioting Arabs and left-wing activists from the village of Na’alin on Erev Shabbos. The Arabs were protesting the extension of the security fence outside of Chashmonaim by lighting fires, launching fireworks, and throwing rocks at the bulldozers and IDF troops. The IDF responded by launching tear gas grenades at the Arab rioters, who eventually dispersed and returned to their village. The Modi’in Illit fire brigade responded to the fire, as well as Hatzolah volunteers from Moshav Matityahu.
