AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– Dozens of Palestinians suffocated during clashes that erupted on Friday afternoon in several areas in the center of al-Khalil city, following a mass rally organized by the citizens.

Thousands of Palestinians and many political, factional and leading figures participated in the march, which was organized by the Youth against Settlements group to demand opening the Shuhada Street in the Old City of al-Khalil which has been closed since 2000 and to commemorate the 19th anniversary of the Ibrahimi Mosque massacre, in which 29 Palestinian worshipers were massacred by an American Jewish settler while they were performing dawn prayer.

According to eyewitnesses, the march was launched after Friday prayers from the mosques of al-Khalil toward Ein Sara and Hussein Mosque and then to the entrance of the Shuhada Street in the area of Bab al-Zawya.

The demonstrators raised slogans condemning the policies of occupation, the closure of the street and the seizure of Palestinian houses in the Old City.

Israeli soldiers and snipers deployed on the rooftops in Bab al-Zawya, fired tear gas grenades at the demonstrators, leading to the outbreak of violent clashes and state of tension in the center of al-Khalil.
