The director of Hebron Endowments, Nidal al-Jabari, said that "the Israeli occupation authorities informed them of the closure of the Ibrahimi Mosque on Wednesday and Thursday, due to the Throne Day."  He added that "after the closure of the Ibrahimi Mosque, the occupation removes the carpets, opens all sections of the Haram to settlers, and organizes parties and holds Talmudic prayers inside the Ibrahimi Mosque."  Jabari denounced the closure policy, saying that "the mosque is a purely Islamic endowment that Jews have no right to."  For its part, the Palestinian resistance movement, Hamas, condemned Israel's closure of the Ibrahimi Mosque in front of worshipers.  The movement's spokesman, Fawzi Barhoum, said in a statement: "We renew our refusal to close the Ibrahimi Mosque in front of worshipers, and to allow settlers to desecrate it and violate its sanctity by holding the Jewish holiday celebration." Barhoum considered "closing the mosque a flagrant violation of freedom of worship and the right of Muslims to pray."  In 2017, the UNESCO World Heritage Committee declared the Ibrahimi Mosque a "Palestinian heritage site".  The Ibrahimi Mosque is located in the old city of Hebron, which is under Israeli control, and is inhabited by about 400 settlers, guarded by approximately 1,500 Israeli soldiers.  Since 1994, Israel has divided the mosque by 63% for Jews and 37% for Muslims, following a massacre committed by a settler that resulted in the death of 29 worshipers.  There is a room for the call to prayer in the part dedicated to the Jews. Israel allows Muslim worshipers to enter their part of the sanctuary throughout the year, while it allows them to enter the Jewish part only 10 days a year during Islamic holidays, Fridays, and Laylat al-Qadr of Ramadan.  However, it allows Jews to enter the section designated for them throughout the year, and to enter the entire campus during some Jewish holidays.
