Arson ‘Revenge’: Arab Terrorists Try to Burn Joseph’s Tomb
After lethal arson by suspected Jewish extremists, Arab terrorists attack IDF and try to burn Joseph’s Tomb in ‘real response.’
During Shabbat on Friday night, Arab terrorists tried to burn down the ancient tomb of the Biblical figure Yosef (Joseph) located in Shechem (Nablus), Samaria, as a “revenge” attack for the lethal arson that killed an Arab infant in nearby Duma village earlier on Friday.
While the identity of the culprits in the arson in Duma remains unknown, the IDF has indicated Jewish extremists may have conducted the attack due to Hebrew graffiti at the site, and that indication was apparently enough for the Arab terrorists to launch an attack on Joseph’s Tomb.
The IDF announced that its forces thwarted an attempt by Arab rioters to set Joseph’s Tomb on fire over the course of Friday night.
According to the Palestinian Arab Ma’an News Agency, the attacks on Joseph’s Tomb started on Friday in the late evening and continued into the early morning.
The site reported that dozens of Arab terrorists from the nearby Balata “refugee camp” hurled rocks, empty bottles and firebombs at the IDF forces at the site.
Local sources were quoted saying that the Arab terrorists considered the burning of Joseph’s Tomb, which they noted is a holy site for Jews, to be a “real response” to the burning of the house in Duma.
