Two cigarette dealers from Jerusalem were lightly injured when they were robbed Friday in the Palestinian village of Kafer Khares near Ariel. According to reports, the two arrived in the village to peddle their goods when they were approached by a number of Palestinians who fired in the air and chased them away. One of the dealers was lightly injured when he fell in the course of fleeing and the other was lightly hurt after being roughed up by the mob. The two, who were in violation an IDF ordinance that prohibits entrance to Palestinian-controlled A areas and warns against entering joint-controlled B areas, were being interrogated by Hebron Precinct Police.
