Senior Hamas official  publishes an official statement on behalf of the movement in which he calls on residents of the West Bank and Hebron to come to the Cave of the Patriarchs on Sunday to confront and oppose the first Hanukkah candle lighting ceremony, in which President Herzog will light a menorah in the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron.

Adding that Israel will bear the consequences of this provocative event.

The official  also calls on the masses to come to the Temple Mount to oppose "Judaism" that Israel intends to carry out by placing a menorah in the Western Wall plaza, since he says that in addition to the Cave of the Patriarchs, the Western Wall and the Al-Aqsa Mosque are "Islamic properties."
