IOF Ban Call to Prayer at Al-Ibrahimi Mosque 57 Times in September 2022

B.M | DOP -

Israeli occupation banned calls for prayer at Al-Ibrahimi Mosque in occupied Hebron 57 times in September 2022, the Palestinian Ministry of Religious Endowments revealed on Tuesday, October 4.

In a press statement earlier Tuesday, the Palestinian Ministry of Religious Endowments stated Israeli settlers, protected and support by Israeli occupation forces, have performed provocative rituals and dances at Al-Ibrahimi Mosque.

It added that the Israeli occupation implemented arbitrary and unjust measures against Al-Ibrahimi Mosque, preventing the call to prayer, preventing worshipers from reaching the mosque, in addition to banning repair work.

In 1994, Israeli occupation divided Al-Ibrahimi Mosque spatially, allowing Israeli settlers to take over a whole part of it. This came following a heinous crime committed by an extremist settler who killed 29 Palestinian worshippers in the Mosque.
