HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli authorities will close the Ibrahimi Mosque in Hebron to Palestinian worshipers on Tuesday, a local official said.
The mosque will be closed to Palestinians while Jewish holiday celebrations take place. Israel also closed the mosque over the Jewish new year last week.
PA ministry of endowment official Tayseer Abu Sneina said the procedures were "provocative" and called on human rights groups to intervene.
