B.M | DOP -

Israeli occupation forces IOF impeded on Friday, October 21, the arrival of Palestinian Muslim worshippers seeking to perform Friday prayer at Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Local sources reported that Israeli occupation forces deployed at the military checkpoints leading to occupied Jerusalem, impeding the arrival of Palestinian worshippers.

Prayer at Al-Aqsa Mosque is restricted to Palestinians in occupied Jerusalem. Meanwhile, a limited number of West Bank and Gaza residents can enter occupied Jerusalem, but not before obtaining a permit from the Israeli occupation.

Al-Aqsa Mosque is subjected to semi-daily incursions by Israeli settlers protected by Israeli occupation forces.

Last September, about 4821 Israeli settlers broke into the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque under the protection of Israeli occupation forces.
