1,000 pray at Joseph’s Tomb; Israelis’ car stolen, burned by Muslim terrorists after illegal entry to Shechem
About 1,000 worshipers prayed at the tomb of the biblical figure Joseph and the surrounding compound in Shechem on Monday evening.
The IDF, in cooperation with Border Police and Police, secured the entry of the worshipers.
Three Israeli civilians entered the Arab city of Shechem without coordinating the visit with Israeli authorities, in violation of rules against the entry of Israelis into Area A.
The civilians left their car, which was stolen and burned by Muslim terrorists. The IDF located the civilians, who were transferred to the Israel Police for investigation.
The IDF arrested 6 Muslim terrorists overnight in Judea-Samaria and the Jordan Valley, who were wanted for involvement in lone wolf terror attacks and violent disorders directed against civilians and security personnel.
