Residents of Bat Ayin in Gush Etzion say police committed a provocation today when two police officers disguised as Arab technicians arrived.
According to a report by the Honenu legal aid organization, the secret police were wandering around the kindergartens in the center of the locality, awaiting reactions by residents.
The presence of the "technicians" reportedly aroused the suspicion of two boys passing by, who approached them in an attempt to understand their actions. The secret police did not provide any clear answers increasing the boys' fears and at one point, pushing started between one of the boys and a "technician". The other boy saw his friend being attacked and was forced to defend him with pepper spray.
The organization also claims that the disguised police officers jumped the boys along with other police officers who were hiding nearby. The pair of boys, both minors, were arrested and taken for questioning by the Judea/Samaria District Police.
Bat Ayin is one of the only localities in Judea and Samaria employing solely Jewish labor while Arabs are not allowed entry. In addition, since the beginning of its existence, the various authorities respect the wishes of the residents and only Jewish professionals and maintenance men are sent there.
Bat Ayin residents note that only by miracle an armed resident did not pass, because had he noticed youths being attacked by an Arab the incident could have ended differently.

What is this kink?
Reminds me of when 0 sent Air Force 1 to buzz Manhattan.
Is there another side to this one-sided account?
I can find out all about the side presented here from my niece or her husband. No idea what the police are doing, though. What on earth are they up to, first waving a red flag around, then hauling in, what? Boys? It’s bizarre.
OK. Maybe they shouldn’t forbid Arabs from even entering, racism and all that. On the other hand, how long do you think I’d live if I took a stroll through Chalchul or El Aroub?
