25 years on, Palestinians mourn Hebron mosque killings

West Bank residents mark anniversary attack on Ibrahimi Mosque which deepened divisions and rent city.

    When an American-Israeli settler opened fire inside a deeply revered mosque in Hebron 25 years ago, he killed 29 Palestinians and injured nearly 200 others.

    Palestinians and Israelis both share the mosque, but the effects of that attack have only widened the gap between them.

    The Hebron treaty soon followed, splitting the city into two - one administered by the Palestinian Authority, the other under Israeli control.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
