Thousands of worshipers are expected to travel to Joseph's Tomb in the West Bank town of Nablus late Sunday night.

The IDF will maintain a large presence in the city and will escort the worshipers to the religious site.

According to the IDF, the trip is the largest of its kind in recent years.

Earlier Sunday, Chief of General Staff Benny Gantz accepted findings from a recent IDF probe into the killing of Ben Yosef Livnat and the injuring of 5 others after they were shot by Palestinian Authority police when they infiltrated the site illegally.
