An IDF soldier was moderately injured last night (Wednesday) when a Palestinian fired towards Joseph’s Tomb in Nablus. Clashes erupted at the site after 16 authorized buses filled with Jewish worshipers entered the area. The worshipers were escorted by IDF, Israel Police, Border Patrol and Israeli Civil Administration forces. Shortly after the buses arrived at the site, Palestinians began throwing stones, Molotov cocktails and burning tires at the Jewish visitors.

The security forces responded by using riot control equipment. During the incident, an IDF soldier was injured and transported to Petah Tikva’s Rabin Medical Center. Initially, it was suspected that the soldier was injured by friendly fire but after further review, it was determined that he was hit by Palestinian fire.

Meanwhile, IDF forces arrested 6 Hamas members in the West Bank last night.
