NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Dozens of Palestinian youths hurled Molotov cocktails at Joseph's Tomb in Nablus late Sunday, security officials said.

Palestinian security forces told Ma'an that youths gathered in the area after late prayers and hurled firebombs at the tomb, before being dispersed by security personnel.

Under the 1993 Oslo Accords, the site was to remain under Israeli control. But the Israeli army evacuated the premises in October 2000 shortly after the start of the second intifada, or uprising, and it was immediately destroyed and burnt by locals.

Jewish groups frequently visit Joseph's Tomb under the protection of Israeli forces, who deploy heavily in the area and often clash with youths from the neighboring Balata refugee camp.

How do you know they weren't Yitzhar,Ginsburg Jewish settlers,dressed as Palestinians throwing molotovs?And did the Israeli forces arrest any? Or were they just "dispersed"? This site,"Qabr en-Nabi Y?suf",is equally sacred to Muslims,Christians &Jews.And was protected by all faiths for millenia. Then,Od Josef Chai Absolutist Halakhic lunatics came &Muslims,Christians forbidden from worshipping there.The "molotov" is Zionism.The rest is effect!

Despicable. Is there not a responsible adult among all the Palestinians with the courage and morality to stand up to these young punks?
