40,000 Palestinians Perform Isha, Tarawih Prayers at Al-Aqsa Mosque

Occupied Jerusalem, Thousands of Palestinians performed the isha and tarawih prayers in the Al Aqsa Mosque, despite the restrictions and constraints of the Israeli occupation.

In a statement on Sunday, Islamic Endowments Department in Jerusalem said that 40,000 citizens performed the isha and tarawih prayers in Al Aqsa Mosque and its covered prayer rooms.

Eyewitnesses said that the occupation forces deployed at the gates of Al Aqsa Mosque and in the Old City, and searched a number of citizens, while they were arriving to pray in the Al Aqsa Mosque.

A number of those prevented from praying in Al Aqsa Mosque also performed prayers in the vicinity of the mosque.

The occupation measures caused a decrease in the number of worshipers at Al Aqsa Mosque as a result of preventing citizens of the West Bank and Gaza Strip from reaching occupied Jerusalem, in addition to setting dozens of checkpoints in its various neighborhoods and at its entrances and the entrances to the doors of the Al Aqsa Mosque.
