Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promised that Jews would remain in the biblical West Bank city of Hebron forever when he made history Wednesday by becoming the first Israeli prime minister to deliver a public speech in the flashpoint city. 

“We did not come to dispossess anyone, but neither will we be dispossessed,” he said.


He  promised to address the issue of access  to the Tomb of the Patriarchs for the disabled and questions of property rights but there was no dramatic announcement authorizing Jewish building at the site of the abandoned market stalls in the Avraham Avenu neighborhood.

His visit coincided with the 90th anniversary of the 1929 massacre of Jews in the Biblical city. 

KAN's Mark Weiss spoke with Yishai Fleisher , the spokesperson for the Hebron Jewish community , about the PM's visit.
