Balkans |  Nearly 120,000 Muslims performed Eid prayers at the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque

About 120,000 Muslims line up at the third holiest site in Islam, Al-Aqsa Mosque, for the morning prayer of Eid al-Fitr.

Muslims and Palestinians of all ages set out from the morning hours to pray at Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied East Jerusalem.

The Old City area, where Al-Aqsa Mosque is located, witnessed pedestrian and vehicle traffic due to Eid prayers. The congregation prayed takbeers and prayers while stampeding at the gates of Aksa.

According to the written statement issued by the Department of Islamic Institutions in Jerusalem, approximately 120,000 people performed Eid prayers at Al-Aqsa Mosque.

After the prayer, the Eid part began with takbeers. Attention was drawn to the children who attended the congregation by wearing their ceremonial clothes.

A group of Turks performed the Eid prayer at Al-Aqsa Mosque, distributing Turkish delight and nuts to the worshipers.

Mustafa Gulerin, who offered Turkish delight to worshipers, told Anadolu Agency (AA) that they had considered making such a gesture when they visited Jerusalem before, because it was well received by the Palestinians.

Expressing the “impossibility of talking” about spending the last days of Ramadan in Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque, Gulerin said that an atmosphere of brotherhood prevails in Jerusalem, and this matter increases even more during the month of Ramadan.

Israeli police raids on April 4-5, during which they used extreme violence against worshipers at Al-Aqsa Mosque, caused tensions to escalate in the Old City of East Jerusalem during Ramadan.

Tensions eased after Israel did not allow fanatical Jews to raid Al-Aqsa Mosque during the last ten days of Ramadan.
