Clashes broke out on Tuesday evening as Israeli citizens began entering Joseph’s Tomb in Shechem (Nablus) for prayers.

Dozens of Arab rioters threw rocks and firebombs at IDF forces who were securing the entry of the Jews.

The troops continued to work to maintain the security of the Israeli civilians in the area and responded to the riots with riot dispersal means.
