Four Breslov Hassidim were detained by Palestinian Authority security forces Saturday night after they trespassed into Joseph's Tomb in the West Bank, police reported.

Israeli media reported that the Palestinians had thrown rocks at the hasidic men's car before they were detained.



The four were later transferred to the IDF for further questioning under the suspicion that they had entered the holy site without permission and endangered their lives and the lives of IDF soldiers.
