IDF Forces Expose Bomb Intended to Hit Israeli Worshippers in Shechem
IDF forces securing the entry of Israelis into the city of Shechem (Nablus) on Tuesday night to pray at Joseph’s Tomb exposed a bomb that was apparently meant to target the worshippers.
The forces defused the bomb, without injuries or damage.
About 2,000 worshipers attended the special prayer session held once a month. The event was held without incident.
The entry into Shechem, which was coordinated with the IDF, occurs several times a year. The prayers take place only during the night and under heavy security provided by the Israeli forces.
