Dozens of Israelis prayed last night at Joseph's Tomb in Shechem under IDF security for the first time since the PA announced its cessation of security coordination with Israel, Kan reported.

Joseph's Tomb is an enclave under Israeli security responsibility in Area A.

Prayers at Joseph's Tomb are held about once a month, and are always coordinated with the Palestinian Authority side.

There is even a Palestinian Authority police station near the tomb complex.

During the entry to the tomb complex last night, clashes between Arab rioters and IDF forces took place. The forces responded with riot dispersal measures.
