THE ONLY EXISTENTIAL THREAT IS INTERNAL:

Ultra-Orthodox battalion soldiers suspended after clashing with border guards (JUDAH ARI GROSS , 12/16/18, Times of Israel)

The military suspended two soldiers from an ultra-Orthodox battalion on Sunday after they allegedly fought with border guards the day before in an attempt to get their friends released from police custody.

According to the Israel Defense Forces, a group of some 50 settlers illegally staged a protest on the outskirts of the city of Ramallah in the central West Bank, during which a number of rioters threw stones at Palestinian homes.

Three suspected rock throwers were arrested by Border Police officers who were at the scene.

The army said two in-uniform soldiers from the ultra-Orthodox Netzah Yehuda battalion of the Kfir Brigade attempted to free the two suspects and as a result "a clash broke out."
