Another "storming" of a Jewish holy place

From Firas Press:
About 500 settlers stormed 'Joseph's Tomb' at dawn today, in the eastern region of the city of Nablus in the northern West Bank.

Witnesses said that large numbers of vehicles carried the settlers during a raid of the city, guarding a large force of the army of occupation.

There are periodic incursions of settlers to the site, to perform prayers and religious rituals in 'Joseph's Tomb', guarded by the Israeli army.
And why do Jews have to be guarded by the Israeli Army to visit a place that is supposed to be open to Jews under existing agreements with the PA?

It is a real mystery.
