A soldier was shot and wounded overnight Wednesday while guarding Jewish worshipers at Joseph’s Tomb in Nablus.
While on routine security for a coordinated visit of 16 buses the soldier was shot near Balata refugee camp.
The soldier was taken to Beilinson Hospital in Petah Tikva where he was listed in stable condition. The circumstances of the shooting were being investigated.
The prayer went on as planned, however several instances disturbed the event, including stone throwers and Molotov cocktails.
