A number of Brelev hassidim entered unauthorized into Joseph's Tomb and fled the area. They then broke through an IDF checkpoint in the area, and the soldiers fired warning shots in the area following the incident.
The IDF reported that the group apparently entered the tomb, and Palestinian policemen fired warning shots in the air in order to drive them out of the area. They then hurriedly fled the scene in a car traveling at high speed. They broke through an IDF checkpoint. This is the second instance in the past few days in which worshippers broke into Joseph's Tomb. (Efrat Weiss)
