Settlers visit West Bank tomb

March 8, 2012 7:18 P.M. (Updated: March 10, 2012 9:07 P.M.)
SALFIT (Ma’an) -- Settlers entered the West Bank town of Kifl Haris early Wednesday accompanied by the army, witnesses told Ma'an.

Locals said that around 30 military vehicles entered the Salfit village at dawn to provide settlers access to a site revered by Jews as the burial site of Joshua.

An Israeli military spokesman did not immediately respond to a call seeking comment.
