The Pals. report so:-
Settlers Continue Raids on Joseph's Tomb
A number of Israeli settlers raided Joseph’s Tomb, in the West Bank city of Nablus, this morning,
Eyewitnesses said that the settlers raided the place, under guard of Israeli troops who fired rubber bullets, tear gas and sound bombs at Palestinian youth, who answered by throwing rocks. No injuries have been reported. Almost every week settlers break into Joseph's Tomb to perform Talmudic rituals, under the claim that it belongs to the biblical Joseph, while historical novels stress that the tomb belongs to one Sheikh Yusef Dweikat, a local religious figure.
What do the Oslo Accords stipulate?
The Palestinian side (later to become the Palestinian Authority) agreed to ensure free access to a specific list of Jewish religious sites located in Areas A and B as specified in the 1995 Interim Agreement on the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, but due to the uncertain security situation, the Israel Defense Forces limits visits by Jews to rare occasions.
