An ultra-Orthodox Jewish man walks through the compound of Joseph's Tomb in the West Bank city of Nablus Dec. 28. In coordination with the Palestinian forces that control Nabus, the Israeli army escorted hundreds of Jewish settlers and pilgrims to the ancient shrine on Tuesday morning. Believed to be the final resting place of the biblical patriach, Joseph's Tomb saw fierce Israeli-Palestinian fighting a decade ago.
