Occupied Jerusalem, MINA – Around 45,000 Palestinians offered the Friday prayer at the Aqsa Mosque in Occupied Jerusalem despite Israeli occupation police’s restrictions.
The Islamic Wakf department in the occupied holy city said that Palestinians swarmed into the holy site in defiance of the Israeli occupation’s restrictions at the Mosque’s gates.
According to Palinfo, it pointed out that Israeli occupation police forces were deployed in the Old City of Jerusalem and barred young men from reaching the Aqsa Mosque after scrutinizing their identity cards.
The Israeli occupation forces block entry of Palestinians from the West Bank and Gaza Strip into the Aqsa Mosque to offer Friday prayer citing alleged security reasons.(T/R04/P2)
