Anger has swept across Muslims after a video of a woman dancing at the Ibrahimi mosque became viral.

Israel stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in East Jerusalem and Hebron’s Ibrahimi Mosque on Sunday. 

In a video, a woman is reportedly seen dancing at the Ibrahimi mosque compound as settlers stormed the holy site

A woman allegedly dances to pop music as she laughs in the video, provoking condemnation and anger from Palestinians who called it a “violation of the sanctity of the mosque”.

Dozens of alleged settlers were seen at the Ibrahimi Mosque dancing and singing along to a band performing Talmudic rituals, according to the Palestinian radio station Al-Aqsa Voice, while others performed similar rituals in the mosque’s courtyard.

The video comes as settlers photographed themselves outside Al-Aqsa days before the latest provocations, according to the Palestinian Shehab Agency.

Palestinian holy sites have been subject to an increased number of assaults by Israeli settlers in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem since the last week of September, coinciding with Jewish holidays including the Rosh Hashanah new year.

Hebron’s Ibrahimi Mosque, which is believed to be the burial site of the Prophets Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, is also regularly targeted by Israeli settlers.

In 1994, the mosque was the site of a mass shooting when an extremist Jewish settler – Baruch Goldstein – murdered 29 Palestinian worshippers and injured 125.

The Old City of Hebron is home to approximately 40,000 Palestinians but has a large and militant Israeli settler population of around 850.
