Jewish worshippers pray at Joseph's tomb

Israeli troops escorted buses with Jewish worshippers to Joseph's tomb in the West Bank city of Nablus early on July 4, Reuters reported. The pilgrimage was made in coordination with the Palestinian forces that control Nablus to let Jews pray on the day when it is believed Joseph died, at the site believed to be the burial place of the biblical patriarch.
