HEBRON (Ma'an) - Israeli settlers moved chairs and furniture into a building in Hebron's Old City on Tuesday in an attempt to take over the property, official news agency Wafa reported Tuesday.

Hijazi Abu Sneineh, an official at the Ibrahimi Mosque, said that settlers brought hundreds of chairs into the building, indicating that they intend to turn the Budairi building into a Jewish prayer area.

The settler presence in the area could cause tension with local Palestinians as the building is located on a road leading to the mosque.

Hebron is a frequent site of clashes due to the presence of 500 Israeli settlers in the Old City, many of whom have illegally occupied Palestinian houses and forcibly removed the original inhabitants. They are protected by thousands of Israeli soldiers.

In 1994, an Israeli settler opened fire on Muslim worshipers in the Ibrahimi Mosque, killing 29 and injuring more than 100 Palestinians.

A 1997 agreement split Hebron into areas of Palestinian and Israeli control.

The Israeli military-controlled H2 zone includes the ancient Old City, home of the revered Ibrahimi Mosque -- also split into a synagogue referred to as the Cave of the Patriarchs -- and the once thriving Shuhada street, now just shuttered shops fronts and closed homes.

2- She hasn't got a clue of "what she writes about", and 1- The "satanic rituals" are practiced by those that hate God's people: - Arab honor killings of innocent women, - Arab suicide bombings of civilians, and - Arab mortars & rockets fired on Jewish cities. Such Satanic actions never "removed the Muslims from the holy land", so clearly lesser wrongs will Not remove the Jews from "their ancestral homeland", the Land that God promised to "the Seed of Abraham, Isaac, & Jacob/Israel.

Since the story is about "a building" and Not the Tombs of the Patriarchs: 1- Please provide a picture of that building, and Not the Holy site, and 2- Apologize Prominently For The Incitement too !!

#8 Nice try. The "Tomb of the Patriarchs" IS THE IBRAHIMI MOSQUE. The same Ibrahimi Mosque that is pictured in the photo and therefore the photo is relevant to the story, you know considering the article is about a "building near Hebron Mosque." There's no incitement to be found but on behalf of all intelligent logical people in the world, I apologize to you for your lack of comprehension skills.
