In related news, the soldiers closed the Ibrahimi Mosque to all Muslims and visitors, and prevented the Muslims from praying in the holy site to allow groups of Israeli colonizers to pray and visit the mosque marking the “Feast of Sarah.”
Furthermore, the colonizers also assaulted many Palestinians in the Jaber neighborhood in Hebron, and maced them with pepper spray, causing some burns to the face of one child.
In addition, the colonizers hurled trash at members of the local Jaber family and yelled insults at them while Israeli soldiers stood and watched without intervening.
