An IDF soldier sustained light injuries during clashes with Palestinian rioters at Joseph's Tomb in Nablus overnight between Sunday and Monday.

The riot erupted after the IDF secured 20 buses of Jewish worshippers who came to pray at the site. Rioters hurled rocks and firebombs, and set tires on fire, the IDF Spokesman's unit said.

Elsewhere in the West Bank, security forces arrested six suspects in multiple raids.

Five of the suspects allegedly took part in unorganized terrorist attacks and violent disturbances, according to the IDF. The sixth suspect is believed to have been wanted due to alleged criminal activities.

Soldiers, police, and Border Police launched raids on addresses in Bet Rima, northwest of Ramallah, Sawahara, northeast of Bethlehem, and Bet Omer, northwest of Bethlehm, arresting a suspect in each location. In Al-Aroub, which is southwest of Bethlehem, security forces nabbed three suspects.
