A round of violent clashes broke out at dawn Thursday after a horde of Israeli settlers broke into Joseph’s Tomb in the Northern West Bank city of Nablus.
Eye-witnesses said dozens of Israeli army patrols stormed Nablus city at predawn time and cordoned off Joseph’s Tomb area, PIC reported.
Dozens of buses carried hundreds of Israeli settlers to Joseph’s Tomb under armed escort by military vehicles and soldiers.
Clashes flared up in the area as the Palestinian young protesters voiced their firm rebuff of the assault.
The Israeli troops attacked the unarmed Palestinian youths with randomly-shot spates of stun grenades and tear gas canisters.
