Israeli president storms al-Ibrahimi mosque in Hebron

HEBRON, Sunday, November 28, 2021 (WAFA) - Israeli President Isaac Herzog stormed this evening the Ibrahimi Mosque in the southern occupied West Bank city of Hebron amidst strict military measures in a step seen as an explicit and clear declaration of his sponsorship of the settlers' plans and support for their crimes against the Palestinian people.

Israeli forces closed the mosque gates, and prevented Palestinian residents who gathered to condemn the visit from praying or being near its surroundings, and assaulted them, leading to clashes.

Israeli forces further forced the shop owners to close their shops, hindered the work of the press crews, and assaulted a number of them in an attempt to prevent them from covering the intrusion.

The Israeli president lit the first candle of the Jewish Hanukkah holiday at the Ibrahimi Mosque accompanied by settler leaders and Knesset members.
