Violent Arab Rioters Destroy Mezuzah at Meoras Hamachpeilah


On Erev Shabbos at the Meoras Hamchpeilah in Chevron, Arab rioters took advantage of the fact that only Muslims were allowed to enter the holy site and smashed the mezuzah case on the front door of the building.

Muslims were allowed to enter the Meoras Hamachpeilah for their holiday of Eid al-Fitr.

But Arabs, instead of celebrating the holiday in a solemn fashion, did so through sacrilege, destroying the aforementioned mezuzah in the Yashni Chevron Hall of the Mearah.

“We rely on the security forces to do everything in order to bring the rioters to justice and to prevent the recurrence of such grave acts,” said the committee in charge of the kever, adding, “We will continue to intensify and deepen the Jewish people’s hold on that holy place.”
