HEBRON, Thursday, September 19, 2019 (WAFA) – Jewish settlers broke early this morning into a mosque in the center of the southern West Bank city of Halhoul, adjacent to Hebron, and held rituals at the site provoking clashes with local residents, according to witnesses.

They said Israeli soldiers first raided the area in order to secure Nabi Younis mosque in the center of Halhoul for the fanatic settlers to hold their Jewish rituals.

Meanwhile, settlers protected by soldiers also broke early today into the center of Hebron’s business area in Bab al-Zawieh and held rituals on Beersheba road, said WAFA correspondent.
