Roughly 1,000 Israeli Jews were escorted by the IDF to Kever Yosef Hatzaddik in the Palestinian Authority-controlled city of Shechem overnight.
During last night’s pilgrimage, Israeli security forces found two hand grenades inside the tomb complex. The explosive devices appeared to have been manufactured in an underground weapons lab, and placed at the site by Arab terrorists targeting Israeli visitors.
According to an army spokesman, terrorists operating in Shechem also opened fire on an IDF jeep, and a number of rioters hurled firebombs and stones at Israeli soldiers deployed to protect the convoy of visitors.
No injuries were reported and one suspect was taken into custody.
