Palestinians looking to pray at Ibrahimi Mosque on Oct 2 in Hebron were barred as Jewish worshippers played music and danced inside, according to the Palestine-focused nonprofit Institute for Middle East Understanding.

The celebrations were called a violation of the sanctity of the mosque. UNESCO recognizes Ibrahimi Mosque as a Palestinian world heritage site, though it is known to Jewish people as the Tomb of Patriarchs.
