(Scroll down for video) Israelis are outraged after a Nazi flag was seen on video flying over a Muslim city, the Tazpit News Agency reported.
Hundreds of Israeli residents of Gush Etzion, were dismayed to see the Nazi flag flying over the city of Beit Ummar.
The large flag is visible from Highway 60, the main road in the area. Residents notified the IDF about the flag, but they have so far failed to act.
Beit Ummar, a city of 13,000 residents, is located northwest of Hebron, close to where the bodies of three abducted Israeli teens were discovered in a shallow grave last Monday.
A resident of Carmei Tsur, who saw the flag, told the Tazpit News Agency that this is reminiscent of what happened 75 years ago. “The Arabs are no longer fearful of hiding their intentions,” he said. “They want to kill, destroy and uproot the Jewish People,” he added.
This is not the first time a Swastika was hoisted over Beit Ummar. The Tazpit News Agency reported that a Nazi flag was flying over the city, very close to a mosque, last year. The IDF and Civil Administration at the time ordered the Palestinian Electrical Company to remove the Nazi flag that was hung on electric wires. The offending flag was subsequently removed.
