Gaza21Apr8AL-KHALIL (PNIC):-ension has been running high in the southern occupied West Bank province of al-Khalil as over 40,000 Israeli settlers stormed the Ibrahimi Mosque over the past couple of days.

According to the 0404 news website, thousands of Israeli settlers defiled the Ibrahimi Mosque over the past two days to mark the Sukkot holiday.

At the same time, the Israeli occupation forces prevented the peaceful Muslim worshipers from entering the site to perform their daily prayers and banned the call to prayers.

The occupation patrols also sealed off Beer Sheba Street, in al-Khalil, so as to allow Israeli masses to scour holy sites in the area.

The Israeli occupation authorities have often closed the Ibrahimi Mosque during Jewish Holidays allowing only Jews to enter.

In July, UNESCO declared the Old City of al-Khalil a protected heritage site. The UN’s cultural arm voted 12 to three—with six abstentions—to give heritage status to the area.
