Palestinians threw rocks at Jewish worshippers and Israeli security forces at Joseph’s Tomb in Nablus.

A Palestinian man who opened fire at Israeli forces during the incident on Thursday morning  was seriously injured after being shot by Israeli soldiers. Other Palestinians threw rocks and Molotov cocktails at the soldiers.

About 1,400 Jewish worshippers visited the site accompanied by Israeli soldiers.

Organized visits to the tomb under police and military protection take place about once a month.
