15 wanted terrorists arrested – Bomb defused as Jewish worshipers enter Joseph’s Tomb
The IDF arrested 15 Muslim terrorists overnight in Judea, Samaria, who were wanted for involvement in terrorism and violent disorders directed against civilians and security personnel.
The terrorists were turned over to security agencies for further investigation.
The IDF, Border Police and the Civil Administration for Judea and Samaria secured the prayers and entry of some 1,200 Jewish worshipers to biblical Joseph’s Tomb in Shechem.
During security scans prior to the worshipers’ arrival, a pipe bomb was found and was neutralized in a controlled detonation.
The prayer took place without exceptional incidents but violent riots broke out at the entrance to the city, with Muslim terrorists burning tires, throwing rocks, explosive devices, firebombs, and fireworks at the troops.
The IDF responded with riot dispersal methods.
