There have been numerous other incidents of Israeli settler violence in Hebron recently.
On Wednesday, Israeli settlers erected a tent in the Ibrahimi mosque garden and uprooted a long-standing tree, witnesses told Quds Press.
Intimidating holy sitesThe mosque’s director, Hafthi Abu Sneineh, told the publication that the attack was part of continuous Israeli actions against the mosque, with the intention of changing its Islamic features.
Yousef Edeis, religious affairs minister in the Palestinian Authority, stated that there has been a few hundred attacks on the Ibrahimi and al-Aqsa mosques in the past two months.
On Tuesday, scores of Israeli settlers stormed al-Aqsa mosque in occupied Jerusalem, escorted by heavily armed occupation soldiers.
Members of the Israeli parliament, the Knesset, also went to al-Aqsa mosque under the protection of soldiers this week after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced that lawmakers can visit the area once every three months.
Previously, Israeli lawmakers were not allowed to visit al-Aqsa mosque due to an agreement signed between Jordan – the custodian of holy sites in Jerusalem – and Israel. Al-Aqsa mosque is one of Islam’s holiest sites.

“Price tag” attacksIsraeli settlers also stormed Islamic sites in the occupied West Bank village of Kifl Haris late June. They performed Talmudic prayers at the Islamic sites under the protection of Israeli forces.
On 8 July, Israeli settlers blocked the road between the West Bank cities of Nablus and Tulkarem with the help of occupation soldiers.
