Hundreds of settlers enter Joseph's Tomb in Nablus

Two young Palestinians were wounded with rubber-coated bullets this morning during clashes between dozens of Palestinian youths and Israeli forces after hundreds of settlers stormed the Joseph's Tomb east of the city of Nablus in the northern occupied West Bank.

Ghassan Douglas, who heads a committee on settlements in the north of the West Bank, said in a statement that six buses of settlers stormed the eastern area of the city, guarded by Israeli soldiers, to perform religious rites.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society reported that two young men were hit in the leg by rubber-coated metal bullets during the confrontations with the occupation forces.
