Masked Beduin men blocked the road to Kibbutz Retamim in the Negev, throwing
stones at residents’ cars on Sunday afternoon.
Following a complaint from
a Retamim woman, who managed to drive around the makeshift roadblocks while the
masked men on all-terrain vehicles threw stones at her car, which also contained
her three children, without getting hurt, Negev Police sent a special force to
the road, in the Ramat Hanegev region.
Police identified the attackers as
residents of the nearby village of Bir Hadaj.
While police said the area
was under control, residents of Retamim demonstrated on the access road to the
kibbutz on Monday night, saying a red line had been crossed.
