Over 1,000 people davened at Kever Yehoshua in the Shomron Sunday night, in honor of Erev Rosh Chodesh. The visitors were accompanied by dozens of IDF soldiers, who provided security.

Kever Yehoshua is located in the Arab village of Kifl Harith, located in central Shomron across from the city of Ariel. Entry into the village is permitted only by special IDF permits, which are generally issued five times a year. Visitors included residents of communities across the country. There were no security incidents reported during the event.

Overnight Sunday, security officials said they arrested 11 wanted security suspects in other areas in Yehudah and Shomron. The suspects were wanted for participating in rioting and throwing stones and firebombs that endangered Israeli civilians and IDF soldiers. Several of the suspects were also charged with belonging to Hamas. All were being questioned on their activities by security forces.
