Jewish Pilgrims Blocked from Joseph's Tomb; Need Prior Authorization to Enter Nablus Area

About 20 Jewish pilgrims were arrested today (June 25, 2017) as they tried to reach Joseph's Tomb in the West Bank town of Nablus, according to the Times of Israel website.

Nablus forbids Israelis entry without prior authorization with Israeli officials.

Four of the Israeli suspects managed to reach the tomb before they were arrested.

The rest of the group was intercepted on an approach road to Nablus by Israeli security forces.
