Second Rally Planned over Joseph's Tomb Murder
Activists are planning a rally Tuesday over the murder of Ben-Yosef Livnat, who was killed by Palestinian Authority officers last week as he visited Joseph's Tomb. In a rally outside Shechem on Tuesday evening, activists plan to call for Ben-Yosef's murderers to be turned over to Israel.
The PA claims that the officers who killed Ben-Yosef were responding to an attack. IDF officers and friends and family of Ben-Yosef have rejected the claims as false.
The Tuesday rally, which follows a similar rally Monday, will also call for PA officers to be removed from Joseph's Tomb.
