NABLUS, (PIC)– Hundreds of Jewish settlers stormed Nabi Yusuf tomb to the east of Nablus city at dawn Wednesday under heavy Israeli military protection, local sources reported.

They said that Israeli occupation forces mounting 25 armored vehicles escorted more than 1200 settlers who performed Talmudic rituals at the site.

The tomb is an Islamic shrine for a man called Sheikh Yusuf Dweikat but the Jewish settlers insist that it was the tomb of prophet Joseph and turned it into a Jewish religious center.
