Israeli riot police storm West Bank synagogue August 18, 2005 at 4:20 PM CDT - Updated July 2 at 12:30 AM Israeli riot police stormed the rooftop of a synagogue in the Gaza Strip, battling dozens of protesters who are throwing sand and spraying foam. Some of the troops landed on the roof in a shipping container and held up plastic shields. Others tried to reach the rooftop from ladders, as teens tried to push them away with a stick. The confrontation in Kfar Darom is one of two taking place at Gaza synagogues today. The buildings are occupied by settlers opposed to the withdrawal from Gaza, which Israel has occupied for 38 years. Meanwhile, at another synagogue in a large Israeli settlement, crowds have been chanting "Jews don't expel Jews!" Protesters also are booing, whistling and throwing water on troops.
