Palestinian protesters mark 1994 al-Khalil mosque massacre

Palestinian protesters mark 1994 al-Khalil mosque massacre
Dozens of Palestinians have taken to the streets in the occupied West Bank city of al-Khalil to peacefully mark the anniversary of a 1994 massacre carried out by a Zionist settler at a mosque.

According to Press TV, on Friday, Zionist regime’s soldiers used stun grenades to disperse crowds of Palestinians who gathered to mark the February 25 massacre of 29 Muslims praying at the Ibrahimi Mosque in al-Khalil.

Reports say a Palestinian demonstrator and a journalist were detained by Israeli forces.

They demanded the reopening of the key thoroughfare known as “Martyrs Street” or Shuhada Street, which has been closed to Palestinians since the incident.

The protesters also slammed the Tel Aviv regime’s illegal settlement expansion in the occupied Palestinian lands as they gathered near the Israeli settlement of Kyriat Arba.
