IDF arms Israeli settlers

Jewish settlers across the West Bank are being armed and trained by the Israeli military in anticipation of unrest and violence leading up to a Palestinian demand for statehood at the United Nations in three weeks.

Leaked documents documents have outlined Israeli plans to arm security guards working on the Jewish settlements with riot gear, including tear gas and stun grenades.

I guess the IDF is expecting the attackers to be more formidable than the defenseless women and children they mowed down in Operation Cast Lead.
