Revered by both Jews and Muslims, the site is believed to be the oldest continuously used intact prayer structure in the world, containing the burial sites of the Patriarchs and Matriarchs of the Jewish People. The Arabic name of the complex reflects the prominence given to Abraham, revered by Muslims as a Quranic prophet and a patriarch through Ishmael. After the 1994 massacre of 29 Palestinian worshippers inside the mosque by Baruch Goldstein, an American-Israeli physician and religious extremist, Israeli authorities divided the mosque complex between Jewish and Muslim worshippers. Hebron is home to roughly 150,000 Palestinian Muslims and 700 Jewish settlers, the latter living in a series of Jewish-only enclaves guarded by Israeli troops.
