Nablus (The Inside Palestine)- Thousand of Israeli settlers raided Joseph’s Tomb east of Nablus in the occupied West Bank on Monday night.
Under the occupation forces protection, buses carrying a thousand of extremist Israeli settlers raided Joseph’s Tomb yesterday night.
The settlers were seen performing Talmudic prayers while provoking the Palestinian residents.
Five Palestinians were injured after being shot by Israeli forces with rubber-coated bullets and tear gas, as they protested against the settlers raid and tried to block the settlers from entering the site.
Quds News Network journalist and reporter, Abdallah Bahsh, was also among those who got injured with rubber-coated bullets while covering the settlers raid.
Joseph’s Tomb is believed by Palestinians to be the burial site for the local religious figure, Sheikh Yousef Dweikat, while Israelis claim it belongs to the Biblical Patriarch Joseph.
Settlers regularly storm the Islamic site under forces protection, stopping Muslims from accessing the area and stifling their movement while providing them.
