1,200 Pray at Joseph's Tomb


About 1,200 Jews prayed, Thursday evening, at the tomb of biblical Joseph in the Palestinian Authority-assigned Samarian (Shomron) city of Shechem, ahead of the observances for the new Jewish month of Tammuz, which begins Friday evening, when travel is prohibited.

The Israel Defense Forces provided security. No unusual incidents were reported.
