A Palestinian Authority terrorist opened fire on IDF troops securing Joseph’s Tomb in Shechem for the visit of 3000 Jewish worshipers to Jewish holy site.

It began with Palestinian Authority Arabs throwing stones at the IDF troops, who responded with anti-riot weapons. The PA Arabs then escalated the attack into live fire.

IDF troops shot back at a Palestinian Authority Arab terrorist, seriously wounding him. He managed to initially escape, but the troops gave chase, caught and arrested him, and took him to the Rabin Medial Center in Petach Tikva.

No IDF soldiers or Jewish worshipers were injured in this attack.

In 2011, Ben-Yosaf Livnat, the nephew of Minister Limor Livnat was killed by 3 members of the Palestinian Authority Security Forces at Joseph’s Tomb.

In 2000, IDF soldier Madhat Yousuf bled to death after being abandoned for 5 hours at Joseph’s tomb, by then Prime Minister and Defense Minister Ehud Barak, following a Palestinian Authority Arab attack on the site. Barak gave the order to not launch a rescue operation in order to avoid escalating the situation.

    Do NOT forget that these Arabs desecrated Joseph's tomb and through his body out of the window a few years back. Arabs have no respect for Jews past and present.
    Expell them NOW!

  2. Iris Frances Zaft says:

    Its a shame and inhuman.
