Kadima MK Calls to Investigate Joseph’s Tomb Death

Deputy Knesset Speaker MK Majaleh Wahabe (Kadima) spoke at the Knesset memorial to mark the tenth anniversary of the death of Border Policeman Medhat Yousef, who was injured at the beginning of the al-Aqsa intifada by an armed Arab mob that rioted at Joseph's Tomb compound.

Yousef died of his wounds after then Prime Minister Ehud Barak refused to use force to enter the compound and provide Yousef with emergency medical treatment.
