Palestinians vandalized Joshua's Tomb in Samaria's Timnat Heres with Arabic graffiti overnight Thursday.

Hundreds of Jewish worshippers, escorted by the IDF, arrived at the site and discovered graffiti on surrounding walls which supported martyrdom.

"Only barbarians are capable of committing such harmful, menacing acts," head of the Samaria regional council Gershon Mesika said. "If Jews were to desecrate a Muslim holy tomb in the same manner, the whole world would rage and erupt."
