Indictments are expected to be filed in Israel against Chasidic Jews who illegally visited Joseph’s Tomb in the West Bank. Seven of the Bratslav Chasidim, who allegedly defied military orders and circumvented a roadblock, were wounded last Friday after a Palestinian gunman fired on their van. Islamic Jihad and the Al-Aksa Brigade both claimed responsibility for the shooting.
