Israeli soldiers desecrated today the Ibrahimi Mosque in the southern West Bank city of Hebron (Al-Khalil) when they broke into it, forcing the Muslim employees and staff to leave it, according to officials from the Islamic Waqf department.

Israel has recently intensified its measures against the Muslim holy place in an attempt to take it over in total.

The Ibrahimi Mosque, believed to be the burial place of the Prophet Abraham, is sacred to both Muslims and Jews and has been the site of oft-violent tensions for decades.

The Mosque is located in the Israeli-controlled section of Hebron, known as H2. It has been divided between Muslims and Jews following the massacre carried out on February 25, 1994, by Israeli-American settler Baruch Goldstein, who opened fire at a large number of Palestinian worshippers as they were performing the dawn prayers on a Ramadan day.

  1. We visited here only last October. The Israeli presence around it is oppressive with armed troops and check points. Probably the most uncomfortable I have felt in many years. The world needs to wake up to what’s going on in the West Bank and Gaza. Whilst I understand the need for Israel to be a secure nation, the Palestinian people both within its own territory and the occupied areas cannot continue to be treated little better than the coloured races in apartheid South Africa. The sad thing is it appears to be almost a role reversal from what happened in Germany during the Nazi period. If we want peace in the Middle East this is not the way to go about it. 😔
