The Israeli military attacked the annual Open Shuhada Street protest of around 1,000 people, organized by Youth Against Settlements. Hundreds of fully armed army and border patrol troops opened fire as soon as eye contact was made with the protesters. The protesters included local and international journalists, activists.

The protest commemorated 23 years of closures, restrictions, and segregation in Hebron that began after the Ibrahimi mosque massacre in 1994 when 29 Palestinians were killed in worship and 125 injured by a Jewish-American settler, Baruch Goldstein

Israel responded by closing Shuhada Street, which had previously been the main marketplace and thoroughfare in Hebron. Shuhada Street remains almost entirely closed to Palestinians today. Hundred of shops have closed and front doors to many Palestinians houses remain sealed shut.

The protesters marched from city center to the entrance to Shuhada Street where they attempted to enter the their street. The Israeli army attacked them with tear gas sound bombs, and carried out acts of physical assault against the nonviolent protesters. The protesters engaged in the demonstration to make their voices heard that the Israeli administration must evacuate Israeli settlers, allow Palestinians back onto the street, and reopen the closed Palestinians shops.

“This was our eighth year of demanding the opening of Shuhada Street, that Israel end its human rights violations and take the settlers out of Hebron. The settlers live here illegally carrying out of violence without any accountability.

It has been 50 years of occupation and 23 years since the Ibrahimi mosque massacre. It is time that we have justice and equality,” stated Youth Against Settlements founder Issa Amro

Transcription made from The Miko's Speeches

This is a beautiful church so once again thank you to the pastor for allowing us to use this is really beautiful and thank you all for being here tonight and and for caring enough to take the time and listen and participate and be active I always begin my remarks with a disclaimer and that disclaimer is this if anybody here came hoping to hear a balanced presentation then they're going to be sorely disappointed I say this because a lot of things that you're about to hear tonight are difficult to hear and also because I don't believe that a balanced presentation on this topic is possible anybody that cares enough to speak about this probably has a very strong opinion one way or the other almost everybody has feelings and strong emotions on this issue one way or the other for me it's deeply personal and the issue itself is not a balanced issue there is no balance in this issue so therefore I say this because there cannot be a balanced presentation on this and I think if anybody claims that their presentation is balanced they're either misleading themselves or the misleading of their audience this whole issue of Israel and Palestine is covered in so much myth and there's so much there's so much double standard when people talk about this issue and I'll give you two examples

Don't know if you heard Bibi Netanyahu speech at the United Nations I heard it not live but after he actually delivered it and he began and he began it with probably the two most striking examples of myth and double standard and he began by talking about the right of return of the Jews to their ancient homeland and of course the Jews that returned so-called returned to their homeland were not exactly the the same Jews who were expelled from their homeland right because these were expelled a couple of thousand years before that these were not their descendants either because they this is business has been a very long time so these are people the people that actually came back so to speak are people that claim some kind of a heritage some kind of a connection a relationship to the ancient Hebrews and they claimed that they had the right to return to their homeland and this was this is what Zionism was about and this is expected this was you know accepted by the world as the right they had the right to return now if we talk about the right of return of one nation you'd expect that there would be if we accept it as a principle than
