Israel banned Adhan for a limited period at Ibrahimi Mosque in May, 2015
The Israeli Occupation Authorities (IOA) banned in May, 2015, the Adhan on loudspeakers at the Ibrahimi Mosque in Israel’s Hebron city for a definite period of time, claiming that it bothered Jewish settlers, reported The News Trbe.
