Israel’s president to light Hanukkah menorah at Palestinian mosque in Hebron

Israeli President Isaac Herzog will light the first candle of Hanukkah accompanied by settler leaders at the Ibrahimi Mosque in the occupied West Bank's city of Hebron.

Hanukkah, which begins on Sunday and ends on 6 December, is a Jewish holiday in which a menorah - a nine-branched candelabra - is lit over eight days and nights.

Herzog has angered members of the left-leaning Meretz party, which is part of the broad coalition government ruling Israel. Michal Rozin, a Meretz Knesset member, tweeted that Herzog's decision is "wrong."
