Settlers enter Rajabi building to mark Jerusalem Day

May 28, 2014 2:48 P.M. (Updated: May 28, 2014 2:50 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma’an) – Hundreds of settlers celebrated Wednesday morning by entering the Rajabi building in Hebron’s Old City next to the Ibrahimi mosque.

Bassam al-Jaabari, a resident who lives near the building, said that hundreds of settlers started entering it. He said they played loud music and shouted anti-Palestinian slogans.

In 2008 an Israeli court removed settlers from the home, leading to attacks against Palestinians.

But earlier this year, a court ruled that settlers had purchased the building legally.

Many Palestinians who live near the Rajabi building say they are afraid that settlers will attack them or their houses under the protection of the Israeli army.

Right-wing Israeli Jews on Wednesday celebrated what they call the reunification of Jerusalem -- which Palestinians and the international community see as the capture and occupation of the eastern portion of the city during the 1967 war.
