PA Security Protecting Joseph's Tomb from Arson

Large forces of Palestinian Authority security personnel were deployed in the area of Joseph's Tomb (Kever Yoseph in Hebrew) in the Balata neighborhood of the Samarian (Shomron) city of Shechem, Monday morning, following weekend attempts by youths to throw firebombs at the holy site, according to the PA's Spa news agency.

The site is holy to Jews as the grave of biblical Joseph. Muslims claim it is the site of righteous Muslim Yusuf Duweikat.
