Israelis arrested at Joseph’s Tomb

Israeli police on Tuesday arrested a group of Israelis on an illegal trip to a flashpoint religious site where several Jews were shot by Palestinian police last month.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the group was arrested near the contested Joseph’s Tomb site by the northern West Bank city of Nablus.

“We arrested more than a dozen Jewish worshippers who were at Joseph’s Tomb without authorisation,” Rosenfeld told AFP.

The group appeared to be extremists who arrived at the tomb shortly after an authorised group of around 200 Jewish worshippers prayed there.
