Hundreds of Israeli settlers stormed, on Wednesday at dawn, the Tomb of Joseph in the northern occupied west Bank city of Nablus.


Eyewitnesses reported that 20 Israeli buses, escorted by military vehicles and carrying near 1,300 settlers, reached Joseph’s Tomb where settlers entered the tomb and performed Talmudic Rituals.


They added, according to Al Ray, that fiery confrontations erupted in the area, between Palestinian youth and Israeli soldiers, following the procession, in which the youth closed the roads, there, and pelted Israeli soldiers with stones and Molotov Cocktails.
