AL-KHALIL, Dozens of Jewish settlers flocked to a Jewish tomb in Beersheba street in downtown Al-Khalil on Monday evening to offer religious rituals, eyewitnesses reported.

They told the PIC reporter that large numbers of Israeli occupation forces (IOF) were deployed at the entrance to the street and installed two barriers. They added that the soldiers occupied rooftops of a number of buildings for a few hours to protect the settlers who arrived in the area aboard buses.

Witnesses pointed out that the soldiers forced shopkeepers to close down and leave the area and blocked Palestinian cars from accessing the street despite being under Palestinian authority.

Militias, loyal to former PA chief Mahmoud Abbas, were also deployed in the vicinity of the street and patrols roamed nearby streets to prevent young men from clashing with the soldiers and/or the settlers.
