Rachel's Tomb, the grave site of the Biblical matriarch, has become a fortress due to ongoing attacks on Jews by Arab terrorists.

Palestinian Authority terrorists attacked the Tomb of the Biblical Matriarch Rachel on the outskirts of southern Jerusalem late Thursday night, along the northern edge of Bethlehem.

The attackers hurled a pipe bomb at Rachel’s Tomb, security forces said. No injuries were reported.

According to local sources, the bomb landed in the Palestinian Authority side of the compound, where it burst into flames. A small amount of smoke drifted into the prayer area of the Tomb as well.
