Hebron marks 20th anniversary of massacre

Twenty-nine Palestinians were killed and more than 100 others injured when an Israeli reservist opened fire in a mosque.

    February 25th marks the 20th anniversary of the Hebron Massacre in which 29 Palestinians were killed and more than 100 others were wounded when an Israeli soldier entered a mosque and began shooting.

    In 2000, the Israelis closed the road where the massacre took place to Palestinians and hundreds of businesses were ordered to shut down and still remain closed today.

    Israel claims the measures are needed to secure the area.
