KABUL (BNA) Despite the restrictions imposed by the Zionist regime against Palestinians on the International Quds Day, some 250,000 Muslim worshippers performed prayers at Al-Aqsa Mosque.
More than 3,200 police, border police and Shin Bet security agents were deployed on roads leading to the mosque.
Authorities allowed women of all ages, men over the age of 55 and children under 12 to enter Jerusalem from the West Bank without permits to perform Friday prayers.
Ramadan is a rare chance for many Palestinians to visit Jerusalem and pray at Al-Aqsa. For many, this was their first time in the city.
During his Friday sermon, Sheikh Ekrimeh Sabri, the imam of Al-Aqsa Mosque, told worshippers: “You who came to the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque from all parts of holy Palestine, you who have crossed the unjust military checkpoints, your march to the blessed Aqsa for the evening prayer and Taraweeh prayers is to remind the 2 billion Muslims of the world of the captive Al-Aqsa.” According to media.
