IDF Rescues US Jews from Arab Lynch Mob in Hevron After Being Firebombed
By Gil Ronen
Five Jewish tourists from the US mistakenly entered the Arab-controlled section of Hevron Thursday, where they were attacked by a mob that threw firebombs and rocks at them, the IDF and police spokesman said.
A local Arab took them into his home, where they awaited rescue by the IDF.
Forces from the Hevron District police and Judea and Samaria police, assisted by an IDF force, entered the neighborhood and rescued them.
Two of the men are in moderate to light condition. They have been taken to receive medical attention.
Photos from the scene show a pair of tefillin [phylacteries – ed.] lying on the road, belonging to one of the victims who escaped during the attack.
