Palestinians commemorate 25th anniversary of Ibrahimi Mosque Massacre

Feb. 22, 2019 4:34 P.M. (Updated: March 18, 2019 4:14 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Dozens of Palestinians took part, on Friday, in a march commemorating the 25th anniversary of the Ibrahimi Mosque Massacre in the southern occupied West Bank city of Hebron.
Clashes erupted in the al-Shuhada Street and Bab al-Zawiya areas of Hebron City as Israeli forces suppressed the march using rubber-coated steel bullets and tear-gas bombs against the Palestinians.
On February 25, 1994, Israeli settler Baruch Goldstein opened fire on Muslim worshipers at the mosque killing 29 and injuring more than 120, a 1997 agreement split Hebron into areas of Palestinian and Israeli control; the Ibrahimi mosque was also split into a synagogue, known to Jews as the Cave of the Patriarchs.
The Ibrahimi Mosque fell under the Israeli military-controlled H2 zone, which also includes the rest of the ancient Old City and the once thriving al-Shuhada street, now just shuttered shops fronts and closed homes.
