The West Bank Wild West

How many wild Jews are now operating in the West Bank?

A senior army commander on Thursday accused settler leaders of losing control of West Bank areas under their control after 30 youths attacked soldiers and border guards, injuring three.

A soldier and two Border Police officers were hurt in the hilltop settlement Yitzhar on Wednesday when settlers mistook a military exercise for an attempt to evict them.

“Around 30 youths overcame the security guard at the gate, threw stones and set tires alight,” said Col. Itzik Bar, who accused the settlement movement of “losing control of what is taking place on the ground”.
