An Israeli soldier was wounded, Thursday at dawn, when Israeli forces entered Nablus to secure hundreds of settlers in Joseph’s Tomb, in the eastern part of Nablus.

Hebrew public radio said, according to Al Ray,  that the soldier was slightly injured  as a result of an explosion, and was taken to a hospital in Petah Tikva for treatment.

National sources said that about 1,200 settlers stormed the holy site to perform Talmudic rituals, with tight protection from Israeli forces.

They added that violent clashes broke out in the area  before extending to Balata refugee camp.
