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.
