Dozens injured during protests marking 27th anniversary of Ibrahimi Mosque massacre

Two Palestinian children were injured and dozens of civilians suffocated in Al-Khalil and various occupied Palestinian cities on Friday as the Israeli army attempted to oppress peaceful protests marking the anniversary of the Ibrahimi Mosque massacre.

In Al-Khalil (Hebron), Zionist troops fired stun grenades and tear gas at citizens who marched the streets from Ali al-Bakka Mosque in the city center to commemorate the massacre’s 27th anniversary and condemn the occupation forces’ measures and attacks on the Mosque.


Demonstrators raised the Palestinian flag and pictures of the mosque and the martyrs while chanting slogans denouncing the settlers and the army’s crimes against Palestinians.


On Feb. 25, 1994, during dawn prayer, hundreds of Palestinians were attacked by mass shootings and bombings at the Ibrahimi Mosque in Al-Khalil. The attack killed 29 worshippers and injured 150 others.


Israeli soldiers who were present back then closed the doors of the mosque to prevent worshipers from leaving and did not allow the entrance of people who tried to save the wounded.


Later, other Palestinians were shot dead by Israeli bullets, taking the number of martyrs to 50.


Palestinians launched their weekly peaceful rallies after Friday prayers to protest this massacre and the continuation of repression, Judaization, occupation, and settlement policies.
