About 1200 settlers raided the city of Nablus last night, accompanied by IOF. Local sources reported that nine buses full of settlers and at least eight military jeeps converged on Joseph’s tomb late last night. Local youth resisting the invasion hurled stones and, according to Israeli sources, also a makeshift grenade, at the IOF and settlers. The IOF responded with tear gas and rubber bullets near the Balata refugee camp and other areas and maintained a heavy presence in the hours following the invasion.

During the issuing of the closed military warrants and the following debate with the soldiers , settlers verbally harassed the farmers and activists and hurled stones towards the herd.

Later on, the settlers invaded the village of Jawayush with dogs and sent the assault dogs to attack the herds.
