Unauthorized Visit to Joseph's Tomb

The Spokesperson't Office of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) reported, Monday morning, that an Israeli made a visit to Joseph's Tomb in the Palestinian Authority-assigned Samarian city of Shechem, Sunday evening without coordinating it in advance with security officials. Palestinian Authority (PA) security personnel transferred the Israeli to Israeli police via the Civil Administration for Judea and Samaria.

In announcing the incident, the IDF reminded the public that entry to Area A, under PA control, is prohibited unless coordinated with security officials. Entry into Area B, with more Israeli control, is still considered dangerous and not recommended.
