Jewish worshipers visit West Bank tomb

Dec. 21, 2012 1:25 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 22, 2012 11:15 A.M.)
SALFIT (Ma'an) -- Thousands of Jewish worshipers accompanied by Israeli soldiers entered Kifl Haris in the northern West Bank on Friday, locals said.

Kifl Haris mayor Issam Abu Yaqoub said the Israelis behaved provocatively during the visit, shouting at villagers and dancing in the streets.

Izzat Shuqour, Yaqoub's deputy, said the group plastered stickers on Palestinian homes in the village.

Religious sites sacred to Jews and Muslims are located in Kifl Haris.

An Israeli military spokeswoman did not immediately return calls.
