Headline: “Shtayyeh rejects Herzog’s claims regarding the Jews’ historical right to Hebron”

In a statement he issued yesterday evening [Nov. 28, 2021], Shtayyeh said that Herzog’s statements are an attempt to determine more false facts in the Arab-Islamic city ahead of Judaizing it, imposing rule over it, and subjugating its original residents to the apartheid regime…

Shtayyeh condemned Herzog’s provocative break-in to the Ibrahimi Mosque (i.e., the Cave of the Patriarchs; Herzog lit a Hanukkah menorah at the site) and warned against its severe consequences.
