Jewish worshipers will be able to enter the Tomb of Patriarchs in Hebron during the night hours in two weeks, the IDF said on Wednesday in response to a request by the Kiryat Arba - Hebron city council.

Jews will be allowed to pray at the site between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur 24 hours a day, in order to carry out the Slihot tradition between midnight until dawn.

It will be the first time the site will be open during the night hours since the attack by Baruch Goldstein in 1994.
