A team of firefighters who were called to extinguish a garbage can on fire at Beit El settlement on Monday night were beaten with rods and stones by local youth settlers, according to the firefighters, who filed a complaint to the police.

 

 

As the firemen were working to put out the fire at Shivat Haminim St. in the settlement, several youth arrived at the scene and claimed that the firefighters' vehicle was blocking the road.
