Hundreds of Israeli settlers, protected by Israeli occupation forces, invaded on Friday, November 18, Al-Ibrahimi Mosque in the occupied West Bank city of Hebron.
Israeli occupation forces fired tear gas canisters at Palestinians and their homes coinciding with the settlers’ incursions, local sources reported.
Earlier Friday, Israeli occupation forces deployed in different parts of the Old City of occupied Hebron to pave the way for settlers to invade the Mosque.
In addition, the Israeli forces closed the main entrance and checkpoint in the area, restricting the movement of Palestinian residents.
Meanwhile, Israeli settlers erected several tents in the vicinity of the mosque, including the yards of Al-Rajabi and Al-Jaabari buildings which were transferred to closed military zones.
