Hevron: Jews Burst Into Tomb

Jews in Hevron burst into the tomb of Biblical leader Otniel Ben Kenaz on Tuesday evening after the army barred them from the site despite a years-long agreement that Jews could pray at the tomb on Tisha B'Av. A riot broke out in the area.

Veteran Hevron activist Baruch Marzel said, “Apparently, this is the only method the military understands.”
