Some 12,000 Israeli Jewish settlers yesterday raided several historic Muslim tombs belonging to scholars and prophets in the village of Kafl Haris, east of the West Bank city of Salfit, Quds Press reported.

Local sources told the news site that a large number of Israeli occupation forces also raided the city to secure the invasion of the settlers.

The settlers performed Talmudic rituals near the Islamic tombs.

Israeli settlers regularly raid Islamic sites to perform Talmudic rituals that provoke Palestinians.

Occupation forces ban Palestinians from accessing the sites during the raids and often impose curfews in nearby areas.
