The Bakery / Tomb of the Patriarchs /al-Haram al-Ibrahimi - Southeast

Located near the police station. Staffed around the clock by Border Police. In 2015, the military installed a fence along the street, dividing it lengthwise into a broad, paved road and a narrow, rutted pedestrian pathway., and the police began forbidding Palestinians from walking on the street and directed them to the pathway. In early 2017, the military extended the fence and installed a gate at its end. In 2019, the military replaced the chain link fence with a more decorative fence. As of June 2018, the gate is open from 7 A.M. to 11 P.M. On Israeli holidays the military sometimes does not open the gate at all. The gate is closed at night and it cannot be used to enter or exit the neighborhoods of Gheith, a-Salaimeh and Jaber.
