Despite the Israeli restrictions, nearly 250,000 Palestinian and foreign Muslims performed the second Friday prayers of Ramadan at Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Those who wanted to perform Friday prayers at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the first qiblah for Muslims, caused a crowd of people in the narrow streets and markets leading to the Noble Sanctuary.
Men and women of all ages, old and young, took sides filling the parks and squares of the Haram al-Sharif, as well as the mosques within the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
According to the written statement issued by the Department of Islamic Institutions in Jerusalem, 250,000 people attended the second Friday of Ramadan in AXA.
Dozens of volunteers from the Institutions Department participated in establishing the Order of Worship in the Noble Sanctuary.
Israeli forces increased security measures and restrictions in the Old City area. And the occupation police announced, in a written statement, the deployment of two thousand policemen in the Old City.
Israeli forces prevent Palestinians in the West Bank from entering Jerusalem
On the other hand, the occupation forces prevented a large number of Palestinians wishing to perform the second Friday prayer of Ramadan in Al-Aqsa Mosque from the occupied West Bank to Jerusalem.
The Israeli soldiers, who sent reinforcements to the checkpoints at the crossings from the West Bank to East Jerusalem, did not allow the men under 55, whose identities they checked, to pass.
Palestinians who wanted to pass through the “300” checkpoint south of East Jerusalem and the Qalandia checkpoint in the north formed a stampede.
