Injuries among Palestinians as settlers storm Joseph’s Tomb near Nablus


NABLUS, Sunday, October 06, 2019 (WAFA) – Seven Palestinians were injured by Israeli gunfire today morning as hundreds of Israeli settlers forced their way into Joseph’s Tomb in the northern West Bank city of Nablus, according to WAFA correspondent.

Israeli forces escorted a convoy of buses packed with over a thousand of fanatic Jewish settlers into the site, located in the Palestinian-controlled area, sparking confrontations with Palestinian residents.

Soldiers opened fire on Palestinians protesting the raid and attempting to block settlers’ access to the site, causing at least seven protesters to suffocate from tear gas and injuring several others with live rounds in their lower extremities.

Among the settlers who raided the site were Israeli Minister of Economy and Industry Eli Cohen, leader of the council of settlers in the occupied West Bank Yosi Dagan,  and Knesset member Moshe Arbel.
