Dozens of settlers broke through a Hebron military barrier on Tuesday and entered the Othniel Ben Kenaz grave-site in order to pray there. Soldiers and police officers worked to clear the area.

The army has allowed settlers to enter the gravesite on Tisha B'Av in the past, but forbade it this year due to Ramadan.
