Two Israeli soldiers were injured on Monday as Palestinian clashed with Zionist settlers who tried to storm Joseph’s Tomb in the West Bank city of Nablus.
Israeli media reported an ’exchange of fire’ as Israeli settlers were escorted by occupation forces to Joseph’s Tomb.
The soldiers were part of the so-called Border Police convoy accompanying around 500 Zionist settlers traveling to the site, according to The Times of Israel.
One officer was struck with a stone, and was treated at the scene. The other was sent to a clinic for additional care after being wounded by shrapnel from an explosive device, The Jerusalem Post reported.
A Border Police armored vehicle was damaged significantly in the exchange.
