Clashes at the Tomb of the Patriarchs Display PA’s Continued Hatred of Israel

Palestinians briefly clashed with Israeli forces in Hebron on Friday over construction at the Tomb of the Patriarchs to make the site handicap accessible.

Photos showed Israeli Border Police troops firing stun and teargas grenades into a crowd of Palestinians that arrived to demonstrate near the site.

Construction at the holy site began on Monday. Plans include installing an elevator, bridge and path connecting the parking lot to the site. On Thursday, local mosques in Hebron called upon Palestinians to show up for Friday prayers and a demonstration at the site, according to media reports.

Making the Tomb of the Patriarchs handicap accessible is for the benefit of both Israelis and Palestinians. Once again, it’s clear that the PA’s hatred of Israel extends so far that they are willing to hurt their own people.
