From Nablus, I remember mostly the settlers of Yitzhar. At least twice I remember them blocking the roads. I saw with my own eyes 11-year-old girls, settlers, throwing rocks the size of 30 centimeters, 20 centimeters. I couldn't believe that girls could pick up such [large] stones. There’s the main road of Judea and Samaria, Route 60. I saw them walking by the junction, throwing stones at Palestinian cars on Route 60. I remember the sound of glass breaking. I don't remember an accident or anything, but I do remember girls from Yitzhar throwing rocks at Palestinian cars. We had to erect a roadblock so that Israeli Arabs with a yellow license plate, Israeli vehicles, that they wouldn't pass, and Palestinians certainly weren't allowed to use the road, because there were people from Yitzhar rioting down at the Yitzhar junction. There were a million forces there, it was a huge incident. The Yitzhar emergency team stood guard so that no Arabs would go up, at the same time you have guys from Yitzhar setting fire to fields or olive trees, and the entire hill was fire and smoke, and I see Arabs from Huwara trying to go up to Yitzhar. I'm standing at a small roadblock on the road. At the junction I saw the settler girls throwing rocks, above I see the Yitzhar emergency team standing with weapons and everything, Arabs are going up, and half the hill is ablaze because of the arson. No doubt that the settlers set the fires, we saw with our eyes. I also saw with my own eyes my company commander [and] his front command squad walking and pushing those girls away from there.
Did you arrest settlers? That's not my job, my job is only to stop Arabs from entering the road.
What did the company commander do with those girls? I remember him confronting them, turning them away, at least trying, I don't remember if he succeeded or not. I remember there was a confrontation and I remember female settlers saying to him "don't touch me, don't touch me."
