Hebron, MINA – Israel bans Muslim to pray at Ibrahimi Mosque in the Hebron City, South West Bank during Jewish Celebrations reserved only for Jews.

The Director of the Ibrahimi Mosque Sheikh Hafthi Abu Sneinah said, Israeli forces reject Palestinians access to the holy site along with its courtyard as the settlers were preparing to mark the Jewish New Year holiday. This was quoted from Wafa, on Wednesday, Sept 9.

Meanwhile, Ahmad Tamimi, a member of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) condemned the closure.
