500 Jewish settlers storm Nabi Yousef tomb

NABLUS, - Tens of Israeli military vehicles escorted 500 Jewish settlers on an unwelcome visit to the Nabi Yousef or Joseph tomb in Nablus city at dawn Thursday.

The settlers offered prayers and left behind slogans in Hebrew after sabotaging a nearby school, locals reported.

Citizens feared that security militias loyal to Mahmoud Abbas, the former PA chief, had made a secret agreement with the Israeli occupation authority (IOA) to facilitate such visits.

They said that those militias disappeared shortly before arrival of settlers, which point to a certain kind of coordination with the IOA. They also noted that the Ramallah authority did not condemn such visits.
