NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers visited Joseph's Tomb in Nablus after mid-night accompanied by Israeli soldiers, locals said Thursday.

Ten buses full of settlers raided the city after midnight to perform prayers at Joseph's tomb. Many Israeli soldiers accompanied them, and deployed in the area.

Witness said settlers celebrated on Amman street near the tomb. Clashes erupted between Israeli forces and Palestinians, and soldiers fired tear gas and stun grenades. No injuries were reported.

The Israeli settlers performed prayers in the tomb until 5 a.m., and then they withdraw from the area.
