Hebron is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in Palestine and the world. The Cave of the Patriarchs is the most famous historic sites in Hebron. Due to the connections of all three monotheistic faiths to Abraham, the city is holy to Muslims, Jews and Christians.  Because of this religious fervor that the city inspires, it has often been the scene of conflicts between people of different faiths.
