Unholy conduct at the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem as Greek orthodox and Armenian clergy clean up sections of the building.
Police separated the rival groups, and no arrests were made because they are all ‘men of God’ according to a lieutenant colonel in the city’s force.
The scuffles often happen as each faction cleans a different part of the church in preparation for orthodox Christmas celebrations in January.
