Israeli forces securing the entry of Israeli worshippers to pray at Joseph’s Tomb in the city of Shechem (Nablus) on Monday night were attacked by Arab terrorists.
Troops clearing the path for the worshippers’ entry exposed and neutralized a pipe bomb.
Some 1,200 Israeli worshippers arrived at Joseph’s Tomb to pray, as Arab rioters set fire to tires and threw rocks at the forces securing them, who responded with crowd dispersal means.
The prayers proceed unhindered, and there were no Israeli casualties in the clashes.
