Days after an Israeli settler murdered 29 Muslim worshippers in 1992, the Israeli army put the city of Hebron on lockdown, closing off some of its main thoroughfare — Shuhada Street — to Palestinian traffic. Twenty-two years later, some parts of Hebron are still off limits to its Palestinian residents. Every year, Palestinian and Israeli activists demonstrate to commemorate the Ibrahimi Mosque Massacre, and call on the Israeli army to open Shuhada Street.
