Settlers break into Hebron home, march to the Tomb of the Patriarchs

Hebron / PNN/

Israeli occupation forces closed the main entrances to the Haram al-Ibrahimi Mosque in order to protect a large march of settlers on Tuesday.

The march started from the Tel Rumeida area to the Haram al-Sharif and broke into a house on its way.

Activists against the “Emad Jaber” settlement said that Israeli occupation forces closed the main entrances to the Ibrahimi Mosque and the Old City, and stepped up its deployment in the Old City to protect the settlers who organized a march to the Mosque, during which they raised the Israeli flags and chanted racist slogans against Palestinians.

At the same time, a number of settlers stormed a house in the old town next to the Israeli settlement of “Ibraham Avino”, under the protection of Israeli occupation forces. The IOF has recently tightened their procedures in the area, obstructing the movement of citizens and residents.
