Ibrahimi mosque in Hebron again forbidden for Muslims
For the second time in less than a week, Israeli authorities will ban Muslim worshipers from entering Hebron's Ibrahimi Mosque beginning Tuesday, Sept. 30 in preparation for the Jewish holiday Yom Kippur on Oct. 4.
An official at the mosque told Ma'an via email that the mosque would be completely closed to Muslim worshipers, while "Jewish settlers" would be allowed free access.
The Israeli authorities closed the mosque to Muslim worshipers last Thursday and Friday on the occasion of the Jewish New Year as well.
