Violent clashes broke out at dawn Thursday between Palestinian young men and the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) after the latter stormed Nablus city.According to local sources, a large number of Israeli troops swarmed the eastern area of Nablus and clashed with local youths before Jewish settlers came aboard cars and buses to perform rituals at Joseph’s Tomb.During the events, young protesters blocked roads with burning tires, but the IOF used bulldozers to remove them.Troops also spread through streets around Joseph’s Tomb and deployed themselves on rooftops of nearby buildings before embarking on attacking angry youths with tear gas and stun grenades and firing rubber bullets at them.The youths responded by throwing stones and incendiary bottles at the soldiers. No reports of casualties among the protesters.Later, dozens of cars and buses carrying Jewish settlers stormed the area under military escort and gathered at the mausoleum for rituals.Israeli troops and settlers storm almost every week the eastern area of Nablus to perform rituals at the tomb, which they think is the resting-place of the biblical patriarch Joseph, while locals and Palestinian historians affirm that the grave belongs to a local medieval Muslim sheikh called Yousef al-Duwaik.
