IDF rescues 7 Breslav Hasidim at Joseph's Tomb

Palestinians opened fire towards seven Breslav Hasidim who had entered the site of Joseph's Tomb in Nablus early Thursday morning without coordinating the visit with the IDF in advance.

The seven Jews arrived in Nablus by illegally bypassing a number of roadblocks, Army Radio reported.

Security forces who were alerted to the scene managed to rescue the Hasidim, who were brought in for questioning. Police requested that their remand be extended.

In related developments, OC Central Command Maj. Gen. Yair Naveh met with residents from the Yitzhar settlement in the West Bank as well as with local rabbis in order to discuss the tense relationship between the IDF and settlers, Army Radio reported.
