Hundreds of Jewish pilgrims flocked to Joseph's tomb in Nablus under the auspices of the IDF as clashes erupted in the nearby Balata refugee camp, Hamas-affiliated media outlet Al-Resala reported Tuesday.

The IDF closed down the eastern section of Nablus for several hours, the duration of the rituals of the Jewish pilgrims, and used large amounts of tear gas during the clashes in Balata, according to Al-Resala's correspondent.
