Settlement leaders gathered outside of the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron Monday morning, for a special event in support of President Donald Trump.

Held on the eve of the 2020 presidential election, the gathering included a special prayer on behalf of Trump and the Trump campaign.

“Today we held a special prayer session in the city of our forefathers, in order to strengthen US President Donald Trump, a lover of Israel, who works for the communities in Judea and Samaria. In his first term, we obtained unprecedented approvals from the US administration led by Trump, after painful building freezes by his predecessor," said Gush Etzion Regional Council Head Shlomo Ne’eman.

"We also witnessed the relocation of the US embassy to Jerusalem. Trump is a president who cares about the State of Israel and it is important for us that he continues for another term."

Yochai Damri, leader of the Mount Hebron Regional Council, said that the special prayer gathering was organized in recognition of the Trump administration's pro-Israel policies.

"This week there will be the US presidential election, which will have have a great impact on the future of the State of Israel. We are obliged to show our appreciation for President Trump for four good years and the support for the State of Israel, the Land of Israel, and the settlement enterprise."

During the prayer rally, settlement leaders invited President Trump to visit Hebron following his reelection.
