West Bank Settlers
React To Slayings
Jerusalem (JTA) — West Bank
settlers engaged in violent
demonstrations over the week-
end in reaction to last weeks slay-
ings of an Israeli teen-ager and a
member of the Israel Defense
The demonstrations culmi-
nated in a tense standoff between
Israeli security forces and settlers
from Kiryat Arba who sought to
occupy apartments in a different
suburb of Hebron.
In the wake of the violence, He-
bron, the site of a bloody mas-
sacre of Palestinians by an Israeli
settler in February, was placed
under curfew through the week-
The unrest erupted as Israel
and the Palestine Liberation Or-
ganizations were set to begin ne-
gotiations in Cairo on the next
phase of Palestinian autonomy.
Settlers blocked West Bank
roads with burning tires and
threw stones at Palestinian
homes near Kiryat Arba last
week after a 17-year-old girl from
the settlement was killed by ter-
Sarit Prigal was killed July 7
near her Kiryat Arba home, out-
side of Hebron, when gunmen
opened fire on her father's car.
The incident took place near
the spot where Mordechai Lapid
and his son, Shalom, were killed
by Palestinian gunmen last De-
Ms. Prigal's father, Abraham,
and her 7-year-old brother,
Nuriel, were lightly wounded by
No group has taken responsi-
bility for the shooting.
In a second incident the same
day, the body of Pvt. Aryeh
Frankenthal, a 19-year-old tank
driver with the Israel Defense
Force, was found shot and
stabbed to death in an abandoned
house in an Arab village near the
West Bank town of Ramallah.
Pvt. Frankenthal had been
kidnapped a day earlier while
hitching a ride from an army
The Izz a-Din al-Kassam, the
military faction of the Islamic
fundamentalist Hamas move-
ment, took responsibility for the
As news of the two murders
spread, a group of settlers de-
scended on Hebron and began
vandalizing Palestinian shops
One 71-year-old Palestinian
resident of Hebron said, "I have
never known such fear. No one
helps us, neither the PLO nor the
U.N. And your (Israeli) soldiers
do nothing, either."
When Maj. Gen. Ilan Biran,
commander of the Israeli army's
central command, arrived in
Kiryat Arba after Ms. Prigal's
The unrest erupted
as Israel and the PLO
were set to begin
death, a group of settlers there
had to be restrained by troops
from attacking him physically.
The settlers screamed insults
at Maj. Gen. Biran, calling him
"traitor," "assassin," and "collab-
With none of the Kiryat Arba
settlers attempting to control the
crowd, Maj. Gen. Biran was
forced to flee to safety.
Following the funerals of Ms.
Prigal and Pvt. Frankenthal,
Jewish settlers occupied some 54
apartments in a Hebron suburb
whose sale had been frozen when
the Labor Party came to power
in 1992 and which the govern-
ment continues to refuse to hand
over for Jewish occupancy.
Settlers have named the quar-
ter Ashmoret Yitzhak, an
acronym of the names of Israelis
killed in the area by terrorists.
