Thousands of Zionists hold rally at the Ibrahimi Mosque

More than 10,000 Zionist settlers gathered on Thursday evening at the Ibrahimi Mosque in the southern West Bank city of al-Khalil to celebrate the Israeli occupation government's decision to include the Mosque onto the list of Jewish heritage sites in occupied Palestine.
Israeli radio said in its evening bulletin that those who organised this rally will honour Israeli members of the Knesset affiliated with the "land of Israel lobby" who played an important role in getting the Ibrahimi Mosque on the list of Jewish heritage.
Meanwhile, the IOF continues to bar Muslim worshippers from reaching the Ibrahimi Mosque to allow Jewish settlers celebrate Passover.
Large numbers of IOF troops are deployed in the old city and Palestinian homes around the mosque have been subjected to IOF raids and searches. Many of the roads leading to the mosque have been closed by the occupation forces.
