razanhadid regram @hamzamaysarah
I took this picture around 6 or 7 years ago in Al Khalil, also known as Hebron. An ancient Arabian city in Palestine with biblical history and charms.

The city of Abraham with the Tomb of Patriarchs is holy to all main three religions. For many, it is the fourth city of Islam and the second most important city for Jewish believers.

Before the British mandate on Palestine a minority of sephardic jews lived in cohesion with the majority of Muslims for centuries after the crusades.
During the 1920's, archaic riots and violence caused by the forced immigration of European ashkenazi jews forced the indigenous jewish minority to leave the town.
After the Israeli occupation in 1967 a few hundreds of extremist jews moved in backed by occupation forces and started taking over one house at a time, until the downtown area was closed to movement except for this minority, fulfilling zionist aspirstions of jewish dominion over the area.

Due to strict occupation policies the old town of Hebron is almost a ghost town nowadays, where the suffering local communities had to shift most of the commercial activities to a newer part of what used to be agricultural suburbs or "Hinterland" of the town.

Attempts of reviving the old town have got it a prestigious architectural award known as the Agha Khan award, however, all activities of commerce, tourism, artifacts and worship still till this very hour lay under the firm grip of occupation forces.

sabrywazwaz With Israel not allowing any building material to enter Gaza, these palestinians made a boat with glass bottles. The spirit of the Palestinians will not be broken, so all you Zionists out there, take notes.

arrihlah #lategram of the tomb of Prophet Ibrahim (as). <3
The grave is located beneath the Ibrahimi Mosque in al-Khalil (Hebron), Palestine. This mosque is also home to the tombs of Sara (Ibrahim's wife), and Prophet Ishaaq and his wife Rifaqah (peace be upon them all). Prophet Yaqoob (as)'s tomb is also here, but has been barricaded by Israel, so sadly you cannot see it.
In 1994, Baruch Goldstein, an American born Israeli, attacked Ibrahimi Mosque during Fajr prayers. He killed 29 innocent Palestinians, while they were still in a state of sujood, and injured 125 more. Many Israeli's view him as a martyr disgustingly.
Israel has also split the mosque, claiming part of it for itself. They sit outside the mosque, screening everyone before we go in. It is a place of worship for Muslims, and one that is very sacred to us, yet this is the treatment we have to undergo by people who invaded the land. They asked us if we had a pocket knife on us... lol
