Work crews comprised of IDF soldiers, representatives of the civil administration, and settlers repaired overnight Saturday several graves in a Muslim cemetery near Ariel that were vandalized on Friday by a group of Jewish worshipers who came to pray at the grave of Yehoshua Bin-Nun. Deputy Commander for the IDF Liason in the Kalkilya area Maj. Yaniv Eruv met with the head of the Kifl Harith village council and reported that the work, which involved repairing some tombstones that had been broken and cleaning the spray-painted slogan "Death to Arabs" from others, was complete. The IDF apologized for the incident.
