About 1,000 people attended a demonstration in Hebron yesterday to demand that stolen Jewish property be returned. The property was stolen by Arabs in 1929, following an Arab pogrom that killed 67 Jews and drove the rest of the Jewish community out of the city.

Two speakers at the rally were survivors of that pogrom:. The demonstrators also urged that Jews be allowed to return to the city's wholesale market. Settlers evacuated the market voluntarily last year in exchange for a promise that they could return later, but Attorney General Menachem Mazuz subsequently vetoed their return.
