On July 7, 2014, Palestinians tried to burn down Josephs Tomb while protesting. Palestinian Authority security forces were able to stop the protesters before they were able to burn it down.
On April 24, 2011, Palestinian Authority police officers opened fire on three cars of Israeli worshipers after they finished praying at Joseph’s Tomb.
An Israeli citizen was killed and three others were wounded. The fatality was identified as Ben-Joseph Livnat, 25, the nephew of Culture Minister Limor Livnat.
Both the Israel Defense Forces and Palestinian Authority ordered investigations into the incident.
According to an initial investigation, three cars full of Israelis entered the compound of Joseph’s Tomb without coordination with the Israeli military or Palestinian security forces and then tried to break through a Palestinian Authority police checkpoint.
The IDF investigation concluded that the Palestinian police officers had acted “maliciously” and with the intent to harm the Jewish worshipers.
IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz added that they fired “without justification and with no immediate threat to their lives.”
