Security attacked during worship at Joseph's Tomb

About 1,500 worshipers prayed Wednesday evening at the Tomb of biblical Joseph, next to the Samarian Palestinian Authority city of Shechem.

The Israel Defense Forces, Border Police and Israel Police provided security. While the prayers went without incident or casualties, two pipe bombs, stones and burning tires were thrown at the forces, who responded with crowd-dispersal measures. One of the bus's windshields was damaged.
