Occupied Hebron (QNN)- Israeli forces on Friday banned Adhan (the Muslim call to prayer) at the Ibrahimi mosque in occupied Hebron and prevented worshipers from performing Fajr prayers.
Sheikh Hifzi Abu Sneineh, the general manager of the Ibrahimi mosque, said Israeli forces set up military barriers and intensified their measures on the roads leading to the Ibrahimi Mosque. They also prevented Palestinian worshipers from reaching the mosque and evicted hundreds of them while trying to perform prayers in the courtyards of the mosque.
Abu Sneineh condemned the Israeli measures to empty the mosque of worshipers and open it for settlers.
The Israeli army also broke into the mosque, interrupting the mosque’s Muezzin, Siraj Sharif, and preventing him from Adhan. Israeli soldiers evicted Sharif and held a worshiper for several hours.
An Israeli settler also broke into the mosque and threatened worshipers during Fajr prayer.
