NABLUS, August 21, 2013 (WAFA) – Hundreds of Israeli settlers Wednesday broke into Joseph’s Tomb, east of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, according to local sources.

They told WAFA that around seven buses carrying hundreds of extremist settlers broke into the tomb under Israeli army protection provoking the residents who clashed with the soldiers.

The soldiers fired rubber-coated metal bullets and tear gas canisters towards the residents causing several suffocation cases among them and the arrest of two Palestinians age 16 and 21.

In another development, Israeli forces raided an area west of Nablus and arrested a 16-year-old Palestinian.

Sources said some of the soldiers were driving cars carrying Palestinian license plates.
