The streets of central Hebron filled with protesters, on Friday afternoon, as around 2,000 Palestinian and international activists marked the 20th anniversary of the Ibrahimi mosque massacre.
Protesters marched through the southern West Bank city calling for the re-opening of Shuhada Street, a major thoroughfare that was closed by Israeli forces in the wake of the 1994 killing of 29 Palestinian worshipers by an armed assailant.

Demonstrators were met with violence by Israeli soldiers, who maintain a heavy presence in Hebron’s Old City near areas where around 500 Jewish settlers have taken over properties.
